See Heaven, Change Your World!

Wednesday, February 19, 2014 (9:20 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

2 Corinthians 4:17, 18 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

As believers, we are all called to transform the little world around us. C.S. Lewis offered a thoughtful perspective on remaining heavenly minded while continuing to make an impact in this present world. In Mere Christianity, he said. "Hope…means…a continual looking forward to the eternal world…it does not mean that we are to leave the present world as it is. If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next…It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. Aim at Heaven and you will get earth 'thrown in': aim at earth and you will get neither."

Being heavenly minded is not natural. It happens when we focus and meditate on the reality and wonderful hope of the world to come. When we do, we can bring a taste of heaven to the little world around us. So let's not become complacent — but stay focused there, so we can be effective here… and soon enough we will hear the Lord saying, "Well, done thou good and faithful servant!"

  • Sister Christian

    Thank you for today's devotion. It really spoke to my heart about what I should be doing instead of what I have been doing. I have slipped back to the old habit of worrying about everything! You just reminded me that I have to have my mind on Heaven and what is to come, not what is going on around me right now, and everything else will take care of itself! Thank you again and have a blessed day!

    I agree with this devotion, we get so caught up on what's great on earth that we forget to do what our Father calls us too. Even the smallest thing can change your little world; like smiling to the next person you see or going an extra 10 m to pick up trash for the custodians.. Thnx's

    We get easily trapped in
    materialistic world that we forget to devote our mind to heaven, thanks for
    minding us that for what we are here on this earth.
