All Hearts and Minds Clear
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. --- Colossians 3:1-4

We can know this scripture as good as we know the back of our hands. We can know it as good as we know where things are in our house even when the lights are off. But all it takes is watching the local and national news too long or listening to critical and negative people to corrode our stance of thinking on things above. Jesus reminds us that our lives are hidden with Him in God our Father. There is nothing going on here in the earth that can win against our Savior. Since we are hidden in Him, then surely - in our personal life and family life, in governments and societies the world over – no matter how tumultuous things may get, nothing can win against us either. We must not allow our hearts and minds to be consumed with the constant stream of negative information generated in this earth. May our hearts and minds be clear as we dwell on things above where our Savior is. Don't worry. God has His eyes on us.
