An extract from something I read earlier.. > In an old Candid Camera episode, an actor is on a busy sidewalk and begins looking at the ground. He walks around a bit and continues to look down. People are passing by him and a few give him strange looks.
After a couple minutes, he decides to get down on his hands and knees and begins feeling around with his hands. People begin to slow down and watch what he’s doing. Finally, one person stops and starts looking at the ground. Then another one begins searching the sidewalk.
In a few minutes, the camera shows about a dozen people looking down, some even on their hands and knees! At that point, the actor, who got all this started in the first place, quietly gets up and walks away. No one else notices that he has left. They’re so intent in their search that they never even bothered to ask what it was they were looking for. Look Up!
Colossians 3:1-2 “…..set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things….”
Mathew 6:26 “Look at the birds: they do not sow seeds or gather a harvest and put it in barns; yet your father in heaven takes care of them! Aren’t you worrth much more than birds?” If He is truly our creator and father, we have nothing to fear.
“Pray the largest prayers. You cannot think a prayer so large that God, in answering it, will not wish you had made it larger. Pray not for crutches but for wings.” ~ Phillips Brooks
