Bible Texts: Matthew 6:25-34
When a man is occupied by the worries of life, he is simply insulting God. Life was designed to be simple and not complicated and the key to making life more effortless is by prioritizing one’s life using the kingdom principles.
Priority in this context can be defined as the principal or the most important thing.
The worst thing that can happen to any man is not death but living without purpose or living with the wrong priority. For this reason, we were admonished by Jesus in Matthew 6:33 to make the kingdom of God our priority and in return, Every other thing we seek will be added unto us.
Believers are also admonished to spend their time wisely because how we spend our time determines the quality of our life. Also, we should learn to de-focus from the hierarchy of needs which includes:
This is because man’s needs are insatiable, but when we meet the needs of our Creator, then He will take care of our needs perfectly.
God’s priority which can be found in Matthew 6:25-33 is for believers to seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness( right living).
Also, we should understand that being busy in the wrong assignment makes us unfulfilled. When your priorities are correct, you preserve your life because priorities are the essence of life. God Himself established His priority at the beginning of the creation; when Jesus came, He re-established God’s priorities.
The kingdom of God is an experience and you need righteousness( right living) to get aligned with the kingdom. The protection and wealth people seek are in the kingdom because the Kingdom of God has dividends and the privileges in the kingdom are called favour.
Prayer: Dear God, help me to be kingdom-minded and give me the grace to live right. Amen!
If you want to have a life-changing experience in your life, then you need to say this brief prayer:
Lord Jesus, welcome into my life; today I accept you as my personal Lord and Saviour; Use me, bless me and direct me. AMEN!
