Heavenly Things

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”  Colossians 3:2

The world screams for our attention.  I don’t know how many more reality shows they can come up with or how many more new gadgets they can make to help us live “simpler” lives.

But, I do know that my attention has to be focused on things “above.”

I had a dream a couple nights ago that  I was being attacked by the “monster” that was on the TV show called Lost.  I haven’t seen this show since it’s finale back in May/June of last year.

In the show, there was this smokey monster that would occasionally pop up and suck people up and kill them.

In my dream, a few of us were inside and we saw the monster coming so we put towels under the doors so he couldn’t come in.  After we thought he was gone, we removed the towels and went outside.  I then noticed that the “monster” was still around.  He came up to me and passed my face.  I thought I was safe.  Then he turned around and sucked me right up.

Now, had I not watched this show, I would never have had this dream that terrified me.  

Had I set my mind on things “above” — things that are beautiful and pure — this dream would never have happened.

“Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.”  Philippians 4:8
