Jesus teaches those that follow Him, that the greatest priority of our lives is to seek first The Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Matthew 6 verse 33:

We are Children of The Perfect Father, our first passion must be to hunger and thirst for the reign and righteousness of God on earth. The first thing of anything we do in our lives is to seek to know more of God.

Seek first by placing all we are and all we want to achieve, into the Hands of The God that loves us. This means our character, our dreams, our relationships, our processions, and virtually all we have, must be submitted to The Loving control of The God that created us.

I an upside down world, which would consider it nonsense to do such a thing. We as followers of The Christ {Our Lord and Our Friend} must live counter-culturally. We must not seek material temporal things like riches first, instead we must put first things first and pursue spiritual, eternal realities like the Fruits of The Spirit before all other things.

The Fruits of the Spirit: Galatians 5 verse 22: Love, Joy, peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faith, Gentleness, Self-control.

Seek first The Kingdom of God, and I am sure we would like more of the Fruits in our lives, as evidence that we belong to His Kingdom and as evidence we are seeking more of God and His righteousness.

God Bless.
