Too-Heavenly Minded

Someone said to me recently, "Have you ever heard the saying, 'You are so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good'?"

I didn't answer. Sure I've heard that saying. It is a lie from the pit of hell. First of all, it is impossible to be TOO heavenly minded. Not enough people are heavenly minded, and if you are heavenly minded, you can always endeavor to be more. Second, I certainly don't want to be 'good' according to the world's standards.

That saying is just an attack from the enemy, to say, once again - you and all your talking about Jesus and the bible - you just don't fit in. I'm glad I don't fit in, that I'm "no earthly good." Everyday I strive to be MORE heavenly minded, to seek God AND His righteousness. To seek to enter in the narrow way and get off the broad path that leads to destruction.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that love according to your Word is doing Your Will in all things and not about our fickle feelings that ebb and flow. Thank you that you are so merciful and graceful with us every day. In Jesus name. Amen.

Amen! I've heard this said in a different way as well. Very insulting and disconcerting.

Yes. When I was growing up people would say to me, "it's not that way, it is just the way YOU ARE seeing it." Now I know, It IS the way I'm seeing it, people just don't want to know the truth.
