I am guessing that most of us would not like to be labeled as living with our heads in the clouds. It does not sound like a compliment. On the other hand, I think we would embrace the idea of living for a vision—a larger goal—especially when that aim is noble. The one—head in the clouds—can mean you are somehow disconnected from the real world, possibly out of touch. The other—living for a vision—implies quite the opposite. Consider the opening of the passage we read today. “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are on earth.” Have you ever met a follower of Jesus who has their mind set on things above?
