Seek for the spiritual, not the carnal


Earthly increase and financial gain cannot and should not be used to determine whether anyone is blessed by God including yourself.

Wealth, power and fame are temporary earthly states of being, soon to pass away; but the blessings of God are forever.

Brethren, seek for the spiritual, not the carnal; the eternal, not the temporal; the things of Heaven, not the things of the earth.

If we set our affections on the things of the earth, our hearts and our souls will become earthbound; but if we set our affection on the things of Heaven, where Jesus Christ sits on the Right Hand of God, our hearts and our souls will be heaven bound.
