Any Earthly Good?
“So heavenly-minded, you’re no earthly good.” It’s a quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. turned to song by Johnny Cash. You know the sentiment. We’re all wary of churches with their head so far up in the clouds they can’t see the problems right in front of them. But what if we don’t need to choose between the two? As we move into the Easter season, we’ll take a fresh look at the Bible’s teachings on salvation to discover that our hope is not for our souls to escape earth. Rather, it’s for heaven to come and transform this earthly and bodily existence of ours! Heavenly-minded can actually spell earthly good.
