Don’t let anyone focus you where God is not focused. Don’t go into their blindness. Trying to see life in the way that someone who is focused upon passing away things does will not work for you, since your vantage point is far better and true. Listen to people, but don’t exchange your vision for theirs. In other words, keep using your New Creation eyes. They work.
Colossians 3:1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
