But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33 BOOKS)
What is the most important thing for you right now? Is it getting the right job when you get out of school? Or getting asked to the school’s dance by your crush? There are lots of things in life that are taking up our time and attention.
This Bible verse gives us a challenge. It challenges us to seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness first. It’s challenging us to lay aside all the other worries, cares and put God first in our lives.
If we put God first in our lives as this verse tells us to do, then all the other stuff we are concerned with will be taken care of. This is good news for us. We don’t have to spend lots of time worrying about all the concerns of life. If we make God our concern then all the other things will work themselves out.
Pray: God I ask you to help me find ways to put you first this year. Help me to make spending time with you a priority in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
