“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.” – Matthew 6:33
Seeking first the kingdom of God is simply keeping up with how to please God in every moment. The purpose for the existence of the earth and all that is in it, is for God’s good pleasure. It’s like God was chilling one day in fellowship with Himself, and He told Himself He was gona show Himself His own power and His glory. So, He told a story that includes a setting, a hero, an antagonist, and billions of characters (each one with an important and unique purpose). The whole purpose of the story was to display His power and His glory so the end of the story is how it began. Just like every story, it has a beginning, a climax, and a happy ending. God already knew how the story would end and that is when He began. Once the story was complete, He began again in a different form. God told the story and then brought it to life and that is what we are living in right now – HIStory! A good analogy of this is an artist writing a best-selling novel, and then turning it into a movie. Why did the artist do it? Because he wanted to be pleased by displaying his gifts and talents to the world. Gifts and talents to us are like power and glory to God!
