The Things that are above

cher lIj yab Daq the Dochmey vetlh 'oH Dung, ghobe' Daq the Dochmey vetlh 'oH Daq the tera'.

Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are on the earth - Col 3.2

Perspective matters - and the things, the Dochmey, that we focus on will draw us along.   That is, what we attend to will give us direction.  As the Life Application Bible notes:

truth gives us a different perspective on our life here on earth, looking at life from God’s perspective and seeking what he desires. This is the antidote to materialism; we gain the proper perspective on material goods when we take God’s view of them. The more we regard the world around us as God does, the more we will live in harmony with him. We must not become too attached to what is only temporary.

Where are you looking for what matters?
