“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth,” Colossians 3:1-2.
“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also,” Matthew 6:19-21.
“It is a new day, and so with this new day what will you be doing in it?
Will you waste away the hours or will you spend them considering your life and the direction that it is going?
There are many pursuits in this life, and yet there is only one that is important. Don’t spend your time in fruitless things, but consider the outcome of your actions.
For time has a way of wasting away the hours. Pursue those things that are everlasting. What are those things that are everlasting?
For I have said that faith, hope and love are the greatest — seek those things, and then everything else will fall into place.
Why spend your money on things that will not last? For everything in this world will decay. Here there are surely beautiful things, and one may find all that they desire, and yet eventually moth and rust will consume them.
All is vanity in the end. You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve both God and mammon. But if you live a life of simplicity and grace towards Me then you will surely have all that you need.
Consider the lilies of the field — for they neither toil nor spin, and yet the beauty of Solomon cannot compare with them.
If you have food and clothing, and a place to lay your head, then surely you have all that you need. For I clothe the hillsides and I give food to the sparrows, surely I care more about you than any of these. ”
“Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things,” Luke 12:27-30.
