Are you propelled by the fuel of faith?
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:18 KJV)
Where do you place your focus upon the things of this world or through faith in God of things of the eternal nature? Things of an eternal nature cannot be seen from this side of Heaven and man must rely upon faith in the work of God to believe in them. Our spiritual perspective is important in keeping an eternal viewpoint as we sojourn upon this earth.
Mankind can get easily sidelined or distracted pursuing rabbit trails in this life which have no lasting significance in the eternal realm. It is easy to allow the glitter and façade of this world to capture our attention; serving to divide between viewing earthly faux jewels and gems of an eternally lasting nature.
A divided mind is a mind that allocates to both temporary and eternal natures. Man cannot give whole heartedly to God if he is swayed or pulled towards the desires and cares of this world
Are you captivated only by things you can see on this earth or spiritually enthralled through faith in an eternal God?
