First things first!
Here Jesus entreats us to seek the kingdom of God above all things. But what exactly does this mean? It means making the things of God a priority. How do you spend your time? Energy? Money? On God things? Or things of the world? Where your treasure is so is your heart. It’s easy to tell if we’re putting God first if we look at our calendars and our bank accounts. Jesus tells us here that if we are faithful to put God first, then all of our needs will be met.
And we pray:
Lord, Help me to seek You above all things. Let me put my energy, time, and money into building Your kingdom, not my own. I trust You to take care of my daily needs as I seek after You. Amen.
