Always Think Spiritually

Jesus used any situation to turn the eyes of His disciples to spiritual matters. Watch what happened on one occasion, “Now when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees'” (Matthew 16:5, 6).
The disciples thought on the flesh. They thought about eating. However, Jesus made them think about a spiritual matter and He used what they were thinking to do it. They thought of bread, He made them think of the bread or leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees, which was the false doctrine that they taught.
See if you can do that to yourself today. Start with food, as Jesus did, and use it to make yourself think spiritually. Do that with other things through the day.
