Are You Continually Seeking the Kingdom?

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Mt. 6:33, NASB)

Is there anything in which you have failed to put God first?  Have your decisions been made after your own wisdom and desires, rather than by seeking and following God’s will?  Do any of the following interfere with your surrender and service to God: ambition, pleasures, loved ones, friendships, desire for recognition, money, your plans?

There are two necessary pursuits for the Christian:  the Kingdom of God and the righteousness of God.  How passionately we pursue that which is unneeded to the neglect of that which is indispensable. God’s promise is sure; the necessities of life are ours if we are zealous for Him.

Take a few moments and make this a matter of prayer.  May God give us all a heart for what is truly vital.
