Good People Priorities


"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness....." (Matt.6:33).

Today's verse speaks to priorities. We can use cliche after cliche to explain them... "First things first..." "Do things in the proper order..." "Pay attention to the important things first..." No matter how we phrase it, there is an order to life. That order tells us about getting the most important things in our lives prioritized... It would seem that getting the most important things right puts everything else in the correct perspective... Today's verse says to make known the value we place on the kingdom by what is most important to us and what we love the most in our lives... "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him" (1 Jn.2:15). The apostle Paul lamented, "For they all seek after their own interests, and not those of Jesus Christ..." (Phil.2:21). It is a daily struggle for many to overcome the world, because it won't go away. Its always there just waiting to pounce on those who do not have their priorities in order. We must always focus on Jesus' availability to us... Because He is there, we who are walking in the light need His continual cleansing through our repentance, confession, and prayer. We should all seek to be cleansed so that our relationship with God will be healthy and right. It only happens when we have the most important stuff, like today's verse, firmly in place. Its a good people priority...

Have a great day... Do good and give Him the credit... Love mark Phil.4:11
