Luke 12:31, “ But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.”
There are so many paths that someone can follow. We complete school so that we can get a good job. We get a good job so we can make great money. We make great money so that we can pay bills and have other things. But there is so much more for this life. Instead of seeking all those other things, seek the kingdom of God.
The kingdom of God should be first in each and every person’s life. There is nothing more important. The kingdom of God needs to expand and that can only happen when people are willing to put God first. There is nothing greater than God. God’s love. God’s grace. Just us and God together.
It should be noted that we do not have to have the things that we want. God provides for our needs and He will not let us down. God makes sure that we are cared for because we are His creation. We do not have to worry because God is always near. Sometimes we can get upset because we do not understand. We can ask God for answers. God answers us in His timing, though.
We tend to run from everything in the world. Run from our worries. Run from our fears. Run from our responsibilities. The problem is, we forget to run to God. God is always there for us and we forget about Him. Forget to pray. Forget to talk. Forget to worship. We need to come back to seeking God with everything that we have. We need to get back to spending more time with God. Giving all to God.
Let us set aside the politics. Let us set aside the judgements of one another. Let us focus on what is important. God. God is all that is important in this world. Seek God and God will bless us, not because we are deserving, but because He cares.
Thank You for the time that You allow us to have. With all the time that we have left on Earth, help us to use it to Your honor and Your glory. We cannot do anything without You. We cannot be anything without You. You are our everything, Father. Help us to be more like You and less like the world. We need to show love and You are love. Help us to seek You first. Seek You with all of our being. Seek and never stop seeking.
In Your name we pray,
