5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
You can go out in the world and catch the attention of everyone with a fancy car. You can wear the best clothes and chase after money. You can chase the things of the flesh and give into the carnal mind. It is the easiest thing to do. However, the reward is death. Instead focus on your spirit. Focus on becoming stronger in God. The more you strengthen the spirit, the weaker the carnal mind becomes. You learn to instead pray that God’s will be done instead of your own. You learn to stand back and give things to God. Instead of chasing after things of the flesh, start chasing after the things of the Spirit. Let the spirit control your mind.
