Seek ye first

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  – Matthew 6.33

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) are words from the previous verse.

There are things that we need not worry about seeking after. It is all those earthly things. Dismiss that, God knows what we need. He knows what I am going to need all the way through because He is already there.

Instead, seek the kingdom of God. Set your affections and desires on things above. God says here that our primary goal in life is to seek to promote and expand and build the kingdom of God.

Once again we need to hear Paul’s words to the Corinthians. He said that though living with a need for all the visible earthly things which are passing away we need to seek the invisible eternal kingdom of God.

May God give me the grace to seek Him and His kingdom and His righteousness first and then trust Him to take care of all the rest. It is only me and my flesh that get in the way.

We need no other pursuits because if we seek His way the rest will fall into place.
