Mindset: “Setting the sails of the mind”

Bookmark and Share

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” ~Colossians 3:1-2

“Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God…” (1 Chronicles 22:19a)

But to every man there openeth,
A high way and a low,
And every mind decideth,
The way his soul shall go.

One ship sails East,
And another West,
By the self-same winds that blow,
Tis the set of the sails And not the gales,
That tells the way we go.

Like the winds of the sea
Are the waves of time,
As we journey along through life,
Tis the set of the soul,
That determines the goal,
And not the calm or the strife.

by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit… For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. ~Romans 8:1, 5-6
