|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 Don't shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ - that's where the action is. See things from his perspective.
2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
