H174 - SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM - MATTHEW 6:33
"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." - Matthew 6:22
To "seek first his kingdom and his righteousness" means to turn to God first for help, to fill your thoughts with his desires, to take his character for your pattern, and to serve him and obey him in everything. What is really important to you? People, objects, goals, and other desires compete for priority. Any of these can quickly become most important to you if you don't actively choose to give God first place in every area of your life.
