Keep Looking Up!!!
Updated: Nov 12, 2019
The awesome, breathtaking view from an airplane recently several thousands of feet above made me think about perspective, everything below seemed so small. In Philippians 3:17-21 Paul talks about the dilemma of those who 'set their minds on earthly things' in contrast to the upward look, 'for our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.' If we stay focused on the daily struggles of life, the problems, the illness, the financial worries we lose our perspective. We have to move up higher to the things that are eternal...."Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died and your life is hidden with Christ in God." Colossians 3:2,3. Don't scurry around like the chickens on the ground digging for worms, lift your eyes and soar like the eagle to a higher level. The songwriter says it well 'Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face and the things of this earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace." The upward look can make all the difference as we 'eagerly wait for Jesus' we have an eternal perspective. Whatever we are going through, we know....this too shall past...the best is yet to come, A we say look up!
