But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matt 6:33)~ Thoughtfulness for our souls is the best cure of thoughtfulness for the world. So many of us are focused on worldly gain; materialistic profit; Hierarchicial stature. We take pride in worldly possession but have no interest in our lot in eternity. What profit is there for us to gain the world and lose our soul? Seek first the kingdom of God, and make the cares of your eternal soul your business: it is the way to be well provided for, even in this world. Jesus said “He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” The life we seek of this world and find comes in the midst of much worrying, wonerding, doubting and struggle and will be lost; but to put aside the life of this world, seeking Him in faith, hope, trust and most importantly, love, will not only provide for us here on Earth but set our destination to His presence in eternity. It is the will and command of the Lord Jesus, that by daily prayers we may get strength to bear us up under our daily troubles, and to arm us against the temptations and cares of the world, and then let none of these things move us. Happy are those who take the Lord for their God, and make full proof of it by trusting themselves wholly to His wise provision. Seek the world and we find the world. Seek the Lord and we find eternity which gives us in and above the world!
