Everyone is headed somewhere. Where are you headed?
A teacher may be headed to the classroom to teach students. A bus driver may have a map outlined in his mind of all the streets he has to drive. An unmotivated idler may be thinking about sitting in front of a screen all day bingeing on Netflix shows. Thought is always headed somewhere.
Most of us have jobs to do and tasks to accomplish—places we “need to go,” but there is one place we want to head no matter what. It’s higher than any material goal, more desirable than any physical destination, more satisfying than any selfish indulgence. It’s spiritual mindedness!
Spiritual mindedness leads to eternal life, life with God that is filled with joy, freedom, inspiration, and health. It’s the most desirable place to be and brings the greatest good our way.
As the apostle Paul wrote, “I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us” (Phil 3:13,14, NLT).
The “heavenly prize” is eternal Life. It’s not found through death, but through Life, through living our eternal spiritual Life here and now. It’s found through the spiritual mindedness Jesus Christ lived and taught us to follow.
You’re headed somewhere. Head to spiritual mindedness! You’ll love what you find there.
