Seek first His kingdom.

Pretty much daily, I need to remind myself that Jesus meant what he said. He didn’t speak to break an awkward silence or to draw attention to himself.

“Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things,” he said. “For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

What we need: Food, drink, shelter, clothes.

Kick it up a notch.

What we think we need: Financial security. A significant other. Our way.

It boggles the mind that he told us a) what to do because b) he knows what we need and c) he will get it to us. Yet so often, we still seek first all the other stuff.

He meant what he said. Every word. Trust him.
