Colossians 3:2

THE INWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Controlling Thoughts

Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.

One of our greatest stewardship challenges is keeping our minds focused on the right things. Paul knew this would be a real challenge, which is why in Colossians 3:2 he tells us to, Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth (NASB1995). Finding earthly things to think about is no challenge. But what about the “things above” that we should be setting our mind on? Take some time to actually write down the top 10 “above” things that you want to set your mind on each day. Then put your top 10 list in a prominent place and look at it each day, and take a few minutes to set your mind on those things above. You will be amazed how this will improve your day. Think about it.
