Above is the title of Colossians 3: 1-17 in my Bible. Paul speaks directly to his readers without any fluff (as he usually does). He provides a lot more detail but he basically says:

1. Set your hearts on things above
2. Set your minds on things above
3. Put to death whatever belongs to your earthly nature
4. Clothe yourself with compassion, kindness…and bind them all together with love
5. Let the peace of Christ rule in your heart
6. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly
7. Whatever you do, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we all followed Paul’s instructions?
