What are you seeking?

By Todd Barrier  

In Matthew 6:33, the Bible saysBut seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” 

It’s clear that for the Christian to overcome the things of this world – as we are told can be done in John 16:33 – the world cannot be No. 1 on our priority list.  

The only way to avoid being consumed by the ways of this world is to be focused on godly things as our top priority.  

Many things happen in our lives – a lot of good things, which are easy to go along with, but also many things we don’t like. We experience death, sickness, job loss, pain and more. If we are focused on these things that are passing away, we will be eaten alive by the worries of this world.  

If we are focused on God as our No. 1 priority, then when these things happen, we are not consumed by them, and we lead much happier lives 

In the next verse, Matthew 6:34, the Bible says“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” 

This confirms that if we seek first the things of God, we can focus on positive things instead of worrying about all of the troubles of the world!
