“Seek God’s kingdom and all the other things you need will be given to you.” Luke 12:31 (NCV)
Today we hear so many slogans all the time, on TV, the internet or magazines. They keep on telling you the things you ‘need’. They suggest how you ‘need’ more money, a bigger house, a newer car, a bofriend or girlfriend, the latest gadget or trendiest bit of clothing. But today’s verse says the thing we really need in life is to seek God’s kingdom above all else.
This simply means that we put first God in our life decisions, actions, in what we do with our time and how we spend our money. We need to have God as our main focus, putting Him first. We shouldn’t seek after things like money and material things, we should put God first and He can give us things like these. But He should always be our main focus, He loves us and wants to be first in everything in our lives.
Cube Challenge: Spend some time praying today. Ask God to help you to put Him first in all you do today and for the rest of the week.
