Matthew 6:31-33 ESV
“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.  But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Primarily, it means we are to seek all that is inclusive in the kingdom of God, because it is of greater value than all the world’s riches. Does this mean that we should neglect the reasonable and daily duties that help sustain our lives? Certainly not. But for the Christian, there should be a difference in attitude toward them.

We are to seek the things of God as a priority over the things of the world. If we are taking care of God’s business as a priority—seeking His salvation, living in obedience to Him, and sharing the good news of the kingdom with others, then He will take care of our business as He promised.

How do we know if we’re truly seeking God’s kingdom first? There are questions we can ask ourselves. “Where do I primarily spend my energies? Is all my time and money spent on goods and activities that will certainly perish?”

Believers who have learned to truly put God first, seek God’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding of everything. First for the things that pertain to life in Jesus and knowing when we do that, He will provide the things we need. Of course those things will not just appear for us because God doesn’t work that way.

He provides sources, jobs, people to help and maintain, connections with the right businesses because God uses people to bless His people. Don’t merely try to seek God and His Kingdom first, it does not work that way, we give ourselves to God completely and He supplies our needs according to His riches in glory. (Philippines 4:19)

Lord, I’ve tried it my way, that way doesn’t work well at all!!! I look to You and Your Kingdom, I press in and seek You and Your Kingdom first knowing You will provide for me and my household.
