For all of us, our lives revolve around the pursuit of…something. The pursuit of comfort…success…ease…fortune…fame…escape…happiness. We are all pursuing something. Sometimes we know exactly what the things are that drive us and other times, they drive us while we are completely unaware.
Jesus taught that there should be one driving pursuit for us.
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. – Matthew 6:31–33 (ESV)
Imagine, if we pursue God and His Kingdom, EVERYTHING will be added to us! Stop and consider that for a moment.
Now consider this, what is everything? Does that mean we’ll have plenty of clothes, food, a roof over our heads? If we pursue His Kingdom, everything will be added to us. All that we are pursuing!
I want to pursue His Kingdom and experience it HERE and NOW. How about you?
