Amidst the flurry of our days, it’s easy to become entangled in the pressing demands of life. Yet, Jesus invites us to rise above the immediate and anchor our lives to pursue something more significant. Seek the Kingdom first.
Daily Devotional for November 15
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)
Seek The Kingdom First
Jesus’ directive is clear: prioritize the Kingdom of God. This profound call reshapes our understanding of life’s ultimate goal – a call to a Kingdom-oriented life.
1. Kingdom Focused.
Our primary pursuit should be the righteousness of God – living by His values, principles, and love. This is the heart of seeking His Kingdom first.
2. Trust in His Provision.
We trust Him to meet our needs as we align with God’s Kingdom. Our Father knows what we need before we ask and is faithful to provide.
3. Eternal Investment.
Every action, thought, and intention becomes an investment in eternity. This focus transcends our temporal concerns and redefines our concept of success.
