“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.” ~Matthew 6:33
What do you this means mean to you? If you have a prayer journal or a journal ,I suggest writing this verse and the other one that I will say here in a few minutes. Take a second and write down the verse and what you think it means. In the book “To High Places” by Melanie Wilber, Seth Amber’s boyfriend challenges her to find the meaning of this verse, but it was really difficult for her. So I decided when I read it I would do the same.
“Seek first my kingdom and his righteousness,” means that when you seek God and his kingdom you will be given hope, joy, and, peace because you trust in God and you let him be in control of your life. Trusting in him is the best thing you can do you for your life because he knows what’s best for you and if you live in that trust nothing else will matter because God will give you everything you need.
When you see “and all these things will be given to you as well.” This is when you believe in God and you read his word and you believe that he will supply your daily needs like food and shelter. I also think in this verse he means emotional and spiritual needs like love, joy and peace and security and continual presence in our lives. We have our parents, and teachers in our lives to help us live a holy RECKLESS life. The key to living that life is to give God everything all your problems and all your joys. Put him at the center of your heart and everything else will fall into place.
I challenge you to live a Holy Reckless life!
