Someone told me the other day that I was so Heavenly minded that I was no earthly good. I didn't know whether to laugh or to say thank you.
First off, that is not a Biblical statement, it's one of those church phrases that folk use like it's Bible. I can't stop laughing now the more that I think about it. The Word of God tells me that I should "set my mind on things above, not on the things that are on the earth" (Colossians 3: 2), now that's Bible!
The problem with this underhanded insult is that being Heavenly minded always inspires me to be more earthly good. Honestly, being Heavenly minded helps me to handle insults like these and not be offended.
As I continue to pursue intimacy with my father daily in my personal time and live on #Worship365, I realize more and more, the importance of being Heavenly minded, setting my mind on things above, and faithfully serving the Lord in every area of my life.
I appreciate the opinions of others, but God's approval is better than man's applause or acceptance. 1Corinthians 3:18 - 4:5 teaches us in detail how to regard ourselves as Kingdom Ambassadors. I hope you will take time to read it. In a nutshell it tells us do not adopt the world's wisdom and do not judge God's servants.
