Colossians 3:2 (NIV)
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
How easily can you discern the source of your thoughts? How quickly do you act on your impulses? Have you learned the importance of delayed gratification? In our quick fix and easy-access culture we tend to overlook the importance of this discipline. The Holy Spirit makes use of delays to groom our hearts and He wants to teach us important truths in that can only be learned in the waiting rooms of life. Pay attention to where your mind wanders. Is spirituality something that engages only on Sundays for you? Or are you committed to following Jesus throughout your week? How do you give Him all your heart and mind and will?
