“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”
King James Version (KJV)

In king Solomon's case As we read 1st kings 11: 1 through 9. His affections were set on the world. It took his focus off of God and caused him to sin. We have to remember what Paul said we must lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily besets us.

We become so busy in persuing our dreams, goals, and desires that we neglect to give God priority in our lives. When we set our affections on things above we become busy fulfilling the purpose that God has for us. Allow God to work within you so that He can work through you.

the love of the world may lead us in destruction because the world oppose the truth and when you follow the truth the world may hurt you because they are associated with darkness. Therefore we must put our focus to heaven above so us to light in this world.

Worldly things bog us down. Things of this world are not eternal. Things of this world distract us from looking at Jesus. The best way to get to know Jesus is DAILY Bible study. Getting to know what God does promise frees us from the frustration we feel when we don 't get what we WANT. There is a spiritual world which we can exist in right now, right here. It 's not anything physical. Think of spiritual things. God is not of this world. Pray for God to reveal the spiritual world and continue to pray for it everyday without cease. To Bring Jesus Christ into every situation we encounter throughout the day is to have heaven right here in this life.

This verse of d bible is advicing us to look away frm d mondain things of this world which will but stand as obstacle on way to eternal life This earthly tins ar but to perish as vanity and they dnt alway give us reasons to seek God in truth and in spirit they don t encourage us but rather discourages us frm obaying the will of God to the latter therefore the bible advices us to set put keep or lay our heart desire goals priorit love or affection on the things above i e heavenly things like the promise of eternal life most importantly the reward for wickedness and righteousness the crown we shall recieve from our Lord etc Having all these and more at heart it is espected that once heart goal ambition and priority will be geared towards obeying God to the latter and making heaven at last so I set mine affection on the things above and not on those on earth
