Seek First the Kingdom of God

“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness…” (Matt. 6:33)

What does it look like to seek first the kingdom of God?

It means prioritizing the kingdom of God over my wants and desires.

It means my first concern is what is best for the kingdom of God.

It means my loyalty towards God and his kingdom is greater than any political allegiance I might have.

It means the most important thing I can do for my family is seek first the kingdom of God.

It means prioritizing the kingdom of God in my relationships with people online and offline.

It means God is never secondary.

It means the kingdom of God comes before my personal comfort.

It means when the people of the kingdom meet to worship or serve God, I am going to be present.

It means always considering the kingdom of God when making decisions regarding time, money, and resources.

It means personal activities do not take precedent over kingdom activities. 

It means I am first and foremost a citizen of the kingdom of God wherever I go.

It means people will know God is first in my life by what I say and do. 

It means I will share the good news of the kingdom of God with others.

It means my greatest desire is God and his kingdom. He has captured my heart. Nothing is more important.
