Set Your Hearts On Things Above - 20th of August 2016 - Saturday's Dose

Pin It

"Set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God ... not on earthly things." - Colossians 3:1-2.

Once upon a time a loaf of bread fell from a bakery truck and as it hit the ground a crumb broke loose. Three sparrows all eyed the crumb and swooped down to grab it, but began fighting over it.

Eventually one of the sparrows succeeded in scooping up the crumb in its beak and flew away with it—hotly pursued by the other two sparrows. A frenzied aerial fracas took place until the crumb was completely consumed.

The only thing these sparrows saw was the crumb. None noticed the loaf still on the ground.

How often we consume our energies squabbling over trivialities while the true riches of life go unnoticed and escape us. And how often we concentrate our energies on non-essential issues while the needs of the hurting are neglected and the lost go to hell!

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, 
Please give me the wisdom to see and the good sense to major on the majors and not get carried away majoring on the minors. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray,
