You’ve probably heard the quote, “Some people are so heavenly minded that they are no earthly good.” (Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.) While some read this as Christians shouldn’t be so fixated on getting to heaven that they forget their mission here on earth, others define “heavenly minded” as focusing on God continually as we live out our time here on earth. I agree with both outlooks. Yes, we can become so involved on assuring our own spirituality, we can neglect the needs of others. And, yes, If we fix our minds on Christ and our relationship with him, his concern for others will be the result.

One thought on “No Earthly Good”
Yes I agree. I also see not being any earthly good as not feeding the brokenness of this world or being influenced by it. It’s all a matter of perspective. Thanks Sheila!💕
