Seeking after Him

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Matthew 6:33-34

What is on your mind right now? What is seeking out your attention, pooling all your energy? Is there something weighing heavy on your heart? Something that cannot be taken care of immediately? Maybe where you will live in a month? How your best friend may react to your exhortation? Where next months car payment may come from? How you will be able to pay for that dr's bill you know is coming up? How in the world you are going to have "that conversation"? How much you weigh, what you are making for dinner, what you are going to wear tomorrow....the list could go on.

May i plead with you to stop? Stop listening to yourself. Stop making lists in your mind. Stop trying to figure out those details and trying to make these things all figure correctly in your life. Please. Just stop.

Thank you. Now with all that extra time you have, i encourage you to "seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness." after all, that is what HE told us to do, right?
