Seek First

Matthew 6:33

English Standard Version (ESV)

33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

This is my favorite verse.  I had thought for a long time that there was an order for our priorities…. God, family, friends, baseball.  As I have grown in my walk with Christ over the years, I have learned that God wants to be first in everything.  He doesn’t want you and I to spend 5 minutes with Him first then go yell at your kid.  He wants you and I to be filled by Him and then take Him with us when we are with our family, when we are hanging with friends, when you are playing a sport etc.  God wants us to seek first His Kingdom in all we do.  If we do, He’ll take care of the rest.
