If  ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above....  Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. (Col. 3:1-2)  The first verse applies to the believer and how he should live his life here on earth. The second verse gets to the point of admitting that unless there is an affection in your heart for the Lord Jesus you cannot seek those things that are above. As I am getting older, investing in the things above is becoming more important to me then ever before. It is so easy to get involved in worldly stuff only to realize laterhow much was wasted and invested in things of little lasting value. So how should we invest in the things above?  1)  Set your affection on Christ by loving Him and spending time daily in His Word.  2)  Fulfill the second command to love your neighbor as yourself.  3)  Proclaim the Good News. Your financial and prayerful investment in an ODBM missionary reaches around the globe as the Good News is faithfully proclaimed.
