|But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. –Matthew 6:33|
I am pretty sure we have all heard of this verse over and over again, but do we really know what it means to seek his kingdom first? Do we understand that we ought to seek his kingdom first before we do anything or even make any decisions?
Seeking God’s kingdom and righteousness first involves more than just that. It involves first asking ourselves the question, “what would Jesus do?” before we do anything. It involves striving first to be righteous in the face of temptation. It involves seeking righteousness before we ask for our heart desires. It involves not worrying about material things and just being righteous through faith that God will provide us with everything we need. It involves constantly going against our flesh that is constantly pulling us a different direction from our Spirit.
Seem easy? I didn’t think so. This is what our Christian walk is all about. Seek first God’s kingdom and righteousness and everything else with be added. I challenge you all to seek his kingdom and righteousness before we do, think or say anything. Lets make this verse a constant conscious thought and embed it in our daily lives.
Stay blessed and spread the word.
