When Keith & I were in school, we had a professor who challenged us to think a little every day about Heaven. He said there’s a saying, some people are “so heavenly minded they are no earthly good”, but in reality, we are to be “so heavenly minded we are earthly good”! Colossians 3:1 & 2 says,
“Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of Heaven, where Christ sits at God’s right hand in the place of honor and power. Let Heaven fill your thoughts. Do not think only about things down here on earth.”
If you have never read the book “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn, it’s a great one. On his website, there’s a little Heaven quiz to see how much you really know about it. If you get a chance, spend some time poking around in his website. There’s a ton of great stuff there, too.
“We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen: For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18
Think about Heaven a little every day, I challenge you!
