SCRIPTURE: “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God” (Colossians 3:1).
A long time ago a farmer saw a nest, full of an eagle’s eggs. He took one and when he got home, he put the egg together with the few chicken eggs in the yard. Some weeks later, from the egg emerged a fine, healthy eaglet. The eaglet grew up with its brother and sister chicks. It learned how to do all the things chickens do: it clucked and cackled, scratched in the dirt for grits and worms. It believed resolutely and absolutely that it was a chick. The eaglet which thought it was a chick looked up in the sky and saw an eagle! “By instinct, this eaglet perceived it was in a wrong place.
It made two or three attempts to fly and realized that it could fly. Suddenly, it flew and joined the mother eagle in the sky where it belonged. Believers don’t belong to this world and must always set their affection on the things of Heaven. Although we have our feet on earth our heart is in heaven. We must not live as if we are of the earth. We are citizens of heaven.
Challenge: Be heavenly minded?
Prayer: Father, help me to be a reflection of Christ always.
Quote: We are citizens of heaven.
