To me this verse helps bring to many other commands that as born again believers we
must do because if we set our minds on things above then we have our minds on God.
In so doing then we won’t think of earthly desires or as some call them “desires of the
flesh”. In this state then we can see and learn what God wants and won’t fall back into
Prayer: Dear Father, I pray that we set our minds on you and follow your commands.
