Today we meet different types of people, who only focus on seeking earthly things and forget about the spiritual.
We also see how people walk from one side to another, asking God to give them what they need, and after having achieved what they want, then they forget that they have stopped looking for spiritual things first. However, the Word says:
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
After reading this verse, we understand the importance of seeking God first before other things, because when we focus on seeking God, other things will come in addition, as we just read in the Word of God.
What good is it for us to have everything and that our life is lost by loving earthly things more than spiritual things? Here we will quote other Bible verses that tell us about this:
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
These words spoken by Jesus are very true. This tells us that we should not be afraid of what tomorrow brings, of what we will have to eat or dress, and this is because our lives are more important than each of these things. The Lord wants us to focus on spiritual things rather than earthly things.
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
The Word tells us that the Lord has control of everything we need, and that let us not worry about tomorrow’s cares, since He knows our needs.
It is good that every day we be confident in the Lord, and believe that He will supply our precariousness. But as soon as we stop trusting in Him, and start looking for earthly things, then there our trust and our faith are running out, and we will no longer be the same.
It is of greater importance that every day we be attentive to seek God before everything that surrounds us, and that we trust in Him, because there is nothing impossible for Him.
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
