Fondness Of Things Above
Colossians 3:1-2 (KJV) If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
Seek God, seek His will and His way, let go of anything of this world and flee from anything not associated with God. Yes, pursue things of a divine nature and do not chase after earthly matters. As you know, elements of this world will rust and rot while everything of God will last forever.
God desires that each of his spiritual children cherish a fondness for Him and obediently choose to follow His way, thereby avoiding multiple pathways and pitfalls working in this world. Though it is often tempting to follow the popular crowd, your feelings, and to adapt to the godless ways of this world, affection for heavenly things rather than things of this world is the lasting pathway God desires for you to accept and follow. Undoubtedly you know that God always desires what is best for you and I.
Affection for God and His way is the key to sojourning peacefully in this world and for living forever in the eternal realm. Clinging to things of this world only leads to anguish both now and forever in eternity.
