New beginnings – Day 9

New beginnings … with new priorities

Bible text(s)

33Instead, be concerned above everything else with the Kingdom of God and with what he requires of you, and he will provide you with all these other things.

Matthew 6:33GNBOpen in Bible reader

What is your most important priority now in your life? The challenging project at work, the crisis with your child at school, your marriage hanging by a thread, an inspiring goal you set for this year or can you honestly say that God (and His will) is the most important priority in your life?

Listen to this quote:

  • “Seek first the kingdom of WEALTH, and you’ll worry about every rand and cent in the bank. Seek first the kingdom of HEALTH, and you will kill yourself worrying about any rash or pain you might experience in your body. Seek first the kingdom of POPULARITY, and you will find yourself in the midst of every conflict. But seek first the kingdom of GOD and you will find that you do not have to worry about anything.”

In Matthew 6:33 Jesus said, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

Let us re-evaluate our priorities, so the people around us can testify that we are placing our Creator (and what is important to Him) first in our lives. In this way, I can assure you that every situation will have the outcome God has planned for it. God bless.
