Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2
The truth is, I love a lot of things. Sappy romantic comedies, family game nights, the color orange….the list goes on and on. And none of these are bad things, by any means. It is a good thing to be surrounded by people you love and things that make you happy.
But if it was all stripped away, where would your heart be? Still pining for the things you’ve lost? Or focused on the things above?
God has blessed us with many treasures on earth. But that’s not where our heart, our affection, should lie. It should rest in Him and Him alone.
The kingdom of God is in the hearts of man. Is YOUR heart one of them?
