Colossians 3:2 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Set your affection (φρονεῖτε)

Lit., be minded, think. As Rev., set your mind. Seek marks the practical striving; set your mind, the inward impulse and disposition. Both must be directed at things above. "You must not only seek heaven, you must think heaven" (Lightfoot). Compare Philippians 3:19, Philippians 3:20.
