All These Things
In Matthew 6:33 Jesus said, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Jesus says that if we seek the kingdom first, all these things will be added to us. Notice, He doesn’t say “all your spiritual needs will be taken care of” but simply “all these things.” That means, spiritual, emotional, financial, relational and material and every other kind of need is included. Can it really be that simple? Could this one command really be the secret to everything? And keep in mind, these aren’t the words of a philosopher or a preacher. These are the words of the Son of God Himself
Many people have put education first in their lives. When all is said and done, they will be highly intelligent fools, missing the greatest wisdom of all in their endless search for knowledge.
Many people have put money first in their lives. When all is said and done, they will know the truth of Matthew 6:24: “You cannot serve both God and Money” (NIV).
Many people put family first in their lives. When all is said and done, it is their family who will pay the price for their misdirected priorities.
When we put anything ahead of Christ and His kingdom in our lives, not only will we miss God’s kingdom, but we will miss all the other treasures as well. So put first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and watch How God will add to your life everything else that you need.
