Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
This is one famous scripture, but one least applied scripture in the body of Christ. If it is applied, most of the times it’s a reverse application.
You are not supposed to strive to be rich, to be successful, to make money, to find a wife. People are always doing something about something about something to get something. It’s not wrong to do something, that’s the right thing. God says whatever you do shall prosper, so start doing something.
However, this obsession about getting rich, this obsession that only business and hustle is the only content in your mind, this attitude, it is not godly. Some single people are always on watch, looking for a husband or wife. They are on the go, in figurative polite speech, kind of desperate.
You are doing it wrong. Seek the kingdom of God first. Make your relationship with God your first priority. It’s about Christ in you and you in Christ, one fusion with Christ, then everything becomes an outflow. All these other things shall be added. What do you understand about the word additions? It means they are not the main deal. God and you is the main course.
I choose the kingdom first, choose the kingdom also, that’s the way to true prosperity. Prosperity which doesn’t add cancer to your body, which doesn’t stress you or tear your family apart. It says in Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. It’s through seeking the kingdom first!!!
