(Colossians 3:1) “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.”


It had snowed.  Two children were playing outside, and decided to challenge each other to see who could walk the straightest line.  The first child carefully looked down at his feet and walked.  When he got done, he looked back and to his chagrin, his line meandered all over the place. 


Then the second child began walking.  When he got done, his line was as straight as an arrow.  “How did you do that?” the first child asked.


“I just looked at the cross on top of that church steeple and kept walking straight towards it.”


You have a God who loves you dearly, enough to go to the cross and pay for your sins.  He’s preparing a home in heaven for you.  Keep that cross in front of your eyes and you will keep walking straight towards your heavenly home. 


Always trying to focus on the cross, just like you,
