But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33 NASB
There are so many things that seek our attention today. And rightly so, God created this world and there is a lot out there that is “pleasing” to the eye.
Having stuff and doing things are not bad. However, we get into trouble when we don’t put God first.
Putting God first aligns everything else in our lives. We make better decisions. We treat and honor our relationships well. We look at and acknowledge what are real priorities in our lives. And we don’t allow the things of this world to dictate our hope and future.
God has a way of helping us navigate this world, and it starts with Seeking FIRST His Kingdom.
I don’t want to ever think that I have “arrived” enough that I stop seeking His Kingdom. I want to seek Him everyday. I need to continue in the spiritual disciplines of reading my Bible, praying and fellowshipping with the Saints.
Father, my one desire is to follow hard after You. I know when that happens, everything else falls into place. Help me to seek, learn and know You more and more each day.
