“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Matthew 6:33

To “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness” means to put God first in your life, to fill your thought with His desires, to use His character as your life’s pattern, and to keep implementing His kingdom values on earth.

We normally accomplish whatever we prioritize in our life. Things that are enjoyable, simple, or profitable are usually prioritized in our lives. We generally put tasks that are unpleasant, difficult, or costly last. In Matthew 6:33, but God says clearly what He deems should come first in our lives.

Priority is fought for by people, possessions, ambitions, and other desires. If we don’t constantly choose to give God first place in every aspect of our lives, any of them might swiftly become the most important to us. Worrying about day-to-day needs depletes us.  But maintaining a good relationship with Him provides us with all of these advantages as a result.

Seeking the kingdom of God first in our life will not be difficult if that is our priority and as Christians, we must and that is the most enjoyable and fulfilling thing to do in our daily to-do list.

Seeking God first and His righteousness is what really matters.

  • Prayer first matters (Philippians 4:6, Psalm 55:17, 1 Thessalonians 5:17)
  • Reading God’s words first matters (2 Timothy 3:16, Psalm 119:11, Joshua 1:8)
  • Choosing God first matters (Matthew 22:37-38, 1 Timothy 2:5, John 14:6)
  • Obeying God first matters (John 14:15, Matthew 16:24, John 10:27, John 12:26)

As Christians, we have to do things that matter first. Our heart is where our treasure is.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Matthew 6:19-21 KJV

Check your heart and ask these things: What is really important to me? What really matters to me? What is my priority?
