Seek This First
Next time you write out your priorities, make sure you put God at the top.
Whenever you set goals for yourself, it’s important to prioritize them. Decide which ones are most important, and do these first. Too often we waste our time on lower shelf, easy-to-attain goals when we should be striving for the goals on the top shelf, even if they are harder to reach.
As you get to know God better, you will find that He will ask you to operate at a higher level of living. He wants you to reach for the top shelf. This has nothing to do with moving to the mountains or getting a promotion at work. What it means is that you shouldn’t worry about your short-term, personal needs (they’re important, but don’t let them consume you). Make God and His Kingdom–which He is building in this world through the hearts of those who follow Him–your highest priority. Then trust God to provide for the everyday stuff of your life.
“He will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern.” Matthew 6:33
