What we seek and what we think ultimately determine who we are. Here’s how this principle works:
Our thoughts shape our desires.
Our desires direct our pursuits.
Our pursuits determine who we are.
So, if we want to change who we are becoming we have to begin by changing what we are pursuing. To change what we are pursuing, our desires have to change. To change our desires we have to change what we are thinking.
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. ~ Colossians 3:1,2
