Heavenly Minded

The love of heaven makes one heavenly. (William Shakespeare)

Shakespeare’s comment in Hamlet, Act I, makes us aware that what we set our mind on will often determine our actions and reactions, even our feelings. Focusing on classical, jazz, or big band music may cause us to have their melodies in our mind all day. We may cheer or mourn our sports losses, but we should always focus our minds on things that are positive and beneficial.

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven. . . Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. (Colossians 3:1-2).
