Setting Your Affection

Colossians 3:2

Set your affection on things above, not on things on earth.

I feel like this verse can a hard one to remember sometimes, it is one that is so very important because we have so many worldly influences surrounding us everyday. We must try our best to not let them actually influence us though. I know it’s hard to always keep your thoughts on Godly things, we must still try our best to do so because God has instructed us to in Col. 3:2.

We are surrounded by movies, music, instagram accounts, youtube channels, and such, that can influence our minds in not so great ways. Now I’m not saying that all movies and music are bad, but the ones filled with cuss words, drugs, and sex, definitely are good for us. There are still plenty of entertaining things out there that will negatively affect so much.

The best way to achieve setting your affection on things above is by surrounding yourself with things with things that will be positive Godly influences on us. Surround yourself with Godly people, with clean music, and appropiate movies.

We become what our surroundings are, so need to make our surrounding what we want to be come.

I hope you have lovely and blessed day!
