Seeking Him First...

"31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:31-33

It has been some time since we have experienced these verses with such profound understanding as we are right now. What will we eat? What will we wear? Where will we live? What does tomorrow look like?

In the heat of election season, and a time of much personal challenge for our little family we are reminded that our future is so much greater than anything we can see with these eyes. Ultimately our hope resides not in a political party, or a job, but in Christ. And our charge is to seek HIS kingdom first, not someone else's and not our own.

Our needs are met through the mercy of the Father, the grace of what Jesus gave on the cross, and the wisdom that guides our decisions through the Holy Spirit.

As my little brother reminded me tonight...
All the best things in life are free.
I would add, free, and worth giving everything for.
