Scripture of the Day - July 23, 2012

Matthew 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

In any relationship, if it is to be successful, each person must put the other first. This also applies to our relationship with God. If we seek after Him first, He will take care of all of our needs. If we insist on worrying and taking care of our worldly needs FIRST God will allow us to do just that. The problem we run into is that we rarely find time for Him because we are so busy trying to satisfy our carnal needs...not understanding that the more we get, the more we want...thus, we end up on a never ending quest that will always be out of reach. 
If we put our focus on God and seek His righteousness first, we won't have to worry about our carnal needs, we will find the satisfaction that this world could never give.
