Great Day Addendum


FIRST
First

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” - Matthew 6:33-34 NIV

I love it when something that Jesus said is so clear.
  • He didn’t say seek Him first but after your second cup of coffee
  • He didn’t say seek Him first but after you’ve read the paper or watched your favorite morning news show
  • He didn’t say seek Him first but not before your spouse and/or family
  • He didn’t say seek Him first but not before your career, career goals or work
  • He didn’t say seek Him first just behind any personal goals and dreams you might have
  • He didn’t say seek Him first just behind all the church work and church stuff you’ve got to accomplish first
  • He didn’t say seek Him first but only if all your personal needs and desires are satisfied
  • He didn’t say seek Him first but only if you don’t have anything better to do
  • He didn’t say seek Him first but only if you feel like it
  • He didn’t say seek Him first if you feel Him close on the mountain top or if you’ve hit rock bottom in the valley
  • He didn’t say seek Him first but only after you fret and worry about it first
He said “seek FIRST His kingdom and His righteousness...” (emphasis mine)

In the midst of a passage where He is telling us not to worry about our life, what we will eat or drink, our body or what we will wear, Jesus said, “seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

What is it (or who is it) that you are putting before your relationship with God?

What is it (or who is it) that you are seeking first?

Keep the Faith... Carpe Diem
