Verse Of The Day
August 21, 2014
Matthew 6:33 —
seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be
given to you as well.
Thoughts on Today’s Verse:
Make Christ Jesus your number one priority, seeking both
his Kingdom (his rule over you) and his righteousness (his transformation
of you). What that means is obeying his instructions and submitting to
whatever he uses to transform your character, whether it be
hardship, suffering or ease. Then desire to live in God's will and become
increasingly like Christ. When we make a commitment toward that goal, the
Lord promises to take full responsibility for providing whatever we need.
This doesn't mean that he will give us everything we ask for, but aren't
you grateful that he doesn't? He alone knows what our true needs are.
