Pastor mobile!  I need this car!  Off to the hospital, the convalescent hospital, someone’s home, and the stylin’ car is parked on the street for everyone to see.  Cool!

Cool… and a complete upside down set of priorities.  I hope I’m not the only one in our church that struggles to keep the main things the main things.  I’ll see something, and before you know it I need something!

Now, I know this is kind of a silly example, and although I like fast cars as much as the next guy, I’d much rather have something with room in the back for the dogs.  But the principle remains.  I can get really excited about stuff that will one day be yesterday’s junk, and completely pass on the things that will have eternal value like, for instance, talking with God and filling my mind with Scripture and seeking to honor Him in all that I do.

I’m fairly sure that I’m not the only one that gets distracted by the glitz and buzz of this world.  I know it’s all passing away, I know it has no eternal value.  Frankly, most of the stuff they’re trying to convince us to buy has little value right now.  So what can we do about handling the distractions before we make a down payment on a $100K car?

We set our minds on things above.  As distracting as this world may be it is not, and never will be, our “home.”  And… when we finally get “home” we’ll realize just how silly it was to love the things of this world.

How do we set our minds on things above?  If you cannot guess that yet, I’m disappointed.  We cultivate the habit of walking in the presence of the Lord as we pray in all situations at all times.  We decide what’s important, and keep the main thing the main thing.

We pray without ceasing.
