I am sure you have heard the expression, “They are so heavenly-minded that they are no earthly good.” I disagree in part with that statement. We should say, “It’s being so heavenly-minded that we become earthly good.”
For example, when I was working in manufacturing, we had to leak-check our product. This process was very costly because we were using refrigerant as our trace gas. One day as I was spending time with the Lord, He spoke to me that we should try using hydrogen as our trace gas. So I pulled our team together and challenged them to develop a leak-test system using hydrogen.
They jumped on the idea and began designing this system. As we built the prototype, we discovered a wonderful feature of using hydrogen. One of the problems we always had with refrigerant was some of the trace gas would linger in the fixture after being purged. To our amazement, hydrogen would immediately and completely vacate the fixture, reducing false alarms caused by residual gas.
This project saved the company thousands of dollars since hydrogen is very inexpensive compared to the refrigerant. That simple Word of Knowledge allowed me to leave a legacy of cost-savings when I retired. Like the Energizer Bunny, the savings just keep going and going! Allow the Lord to give you “heaven’s mind” so you can be earthly good to everyone around you!
Yours in Christ,
