“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness...”
This journey through Matthew 6:33 is really working on my heart and mind. I’m even seeing this play out on the sermons my Pastor preaches. This is good.
Have you heard the phrase, “So spiritually minded that you are no earthly good?”
Yes, I’m sure you have. I am a thinker and as such I have always found fault with that phrase and I could speak eloquently against it validating why it was false but did you know that there was a scripture which validates my point of it being false? Yes, such a scripture exists.
If you are about the things of the Spirit you are not going to function in such a way that you would not be good to man or to the earth. One reason is that God is love and his love has been shed abroad in the hearts of those who serve him. Or I could say this, “Since his love has been shed abroad in the hearts of his children it functions and is applied by them as they give their minds and hearts over to the things of the Spirit.
“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
A better phrase to but forth in terms of being no earthly good is this: “So carnally minded that you are no earthly good.”
Be Spiritually Minded for through it you will be a blessing to all.
