Seek Higher Ground

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ,set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians 3:1-2

In a flood or a tsunami the advice is given to get to higher ground to avoid impending calamity. Wise advice getting out of the path of torrential flood waters. But in your life too it is wise advice to seek 'higher ground' as well. Look up, choose the high road as a good friend of mine once told me.

It is easy to get trapped if you choose to remain and grovel in dangerous situations or things that do nothing to build people up. When it comes to politics for instance,  you can choose to be ugly and mean and say hateful things or you can choose to go higher and be kind, pray, and trust God.

Whatever you do ask yourself am I seeking things higher or am I stuck in the mire?

PRAYER: I want to do things Lord that lift up and not tear down. Use me in the world around me to help people look higher. In Jesus' name. Amen.
