Colossians 3:1 (NRSV) So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
Holy God, thank you for the wisdom of your word that reminds us that, as believers, we have been raised with Christ and that we should set our sights on things that rise above the pettiness that often confronts us in today’s society. Help us to maintain our integrity and live by the standards Jesus modeled for us in his earthly ministry. In the Blessed name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
