  • COLUMN: Keep looking up

    Where you put your eyes is very important. Paul in Colossians 3:1-11 urges us to “Set our mind on things above.” Stop for a few minutes to read this passage of scripture. Paul tells us to look up, look out, look in and look around.

    Colossians, Ephesians and Romans all follow the same pattern. Paul deals with doctrines and then moves to duties. He does not want us to be like the people in Titus 1:16, “They claim they know God, but by their actions they deny Him.”
