“Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well”

Matthew 6:33 (New Century Version)

Starting in verse 6:23, Jesus is giving the people some healthy perspective on living by faith. He is addressing everyone’s basic daily needs; clothes (our stuff), and food (our survival).

Jesus is telling us that God will start to intervene in meeting these needs if we start to focus more on placing ourselves under His leadership (‘kingdom’), working on doing right, looking to help others, and not being consumed with just meeting our own needs. If we direct time and effort into seeking God, we are saying to Him that “I believe, and I’m banking on You to take care of me”.


Heavenly Father, as I work responsibly to take care of my basic needs, give me opportunities to help others and spend some time learning more about You. Because I want to experience You stepping in and helping my needs get met. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
