It is not saying to be so heavenly minded, that we are of little effect on our journey through this world. Our relationship with Our Lord, Our Redeemer and Our Friend should shapes every relationship with have with other people.
Our relationship with Our Lord. Our Redeemer and Our Friend, should have such important effect, on our working relationship, on our marriages, on our relationships with friends and acquaintances, because we should be known by our love. Love that is from Him, because His is an uplifting love.

Set our minds on Him, He has so much for us, to reach a dying world.
