First Things First

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33

Putting our priorities in order helps everything to fall into place. Our scripture today reminds us of the power and opportunity that comes with putting the Lord first in our lives.  If we seek the Lord and His righteousness first, our lives become complete.  We can put Him first in our thinking, our schedule, our resources and in our hearts.  We can seek His guidance in our decision making and throughout our daily living.  Putting Him first helps us to see and move toward our purpose.  We can put the Lord first in our lives and trust that our lives will be complete in Him.

If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.  Matthew 6:30-33 MSG
