A Study of Colossians 3:1–4
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, Who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory. (Colossians 3:1-4)
The website brainyquote.com credits Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. with saying “Some people are so heavenly minded that they are no earthly good.” Whatever it is that Mr. Holmes may have meant by that, it certainly was not the perspective that the Apostle Paul had and communicated by inspiration of God.
