Trivial Pursuits

A familiar Mother Goose rhyme goes:

“Pussy cat, Pussy cat, where have you been?

I’ve been to London to visit the queen.

Pussy cat, Pussy cat what did you there?

I frightened a little mouse under the chair.”

Like that cat, Christians sometimes settle for petty involvements, trivial pursuits—chasing mice—when we have the opportunity to spend time with royalty, with the King of kings! Why waste our time on petty activities when we can enjoy being in the presence of God?

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”—Colossians 3:1-2.
