For a long time now, Christians have fretted about the possibility of being so heavenly-minded that they are of no earthly good. Yet in reality we Christians are often wayward and easily lose our bearings. Before we realize what we are doing, we have dropped our eyes from heaven's glory to the fleeting things of this life. This world is our travelling-place, but we are continually tempted to make it our stopping-place. We are called to travel looking steadfastly forward to glory, but, like little children, we take a few steps and then turn aside to examine some worthless little trinket or to fiddle with something that may be dangerous! In this thoroughly biblical and practical work Roger Ellsworth shows us that much of what distracts our minds and troubles our hearts in this life comes from our trying to make this world our home. But the truth is, this world is not our home. We are strangers and pilgrims here. Right thoughts of heaven will transform our whole thinking about things on this earth. In fact, the more heavenly-minded we are, the more earthly good we shall be!
