What would it look like to be uninterested in things that don’t last?

Jim Elliff illustrates what it means to set your mind on things above with an amazing story about William Tennent and then concludes with these words: 

Francis Schaeffer wrote that believers should live their lives as if they had died and gone to heaven and then returned again. Just how would you respond to your normal temptations after having seen heaven?

"Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on the earth . . . therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire and greed . . ." (Col. 3:2,5)
