There is a lot of good meat in these verses, but I want to focus on verse 33. It is probably the most well-known verse in this passage, but sometimes I think a few things get overlooked. Let's look at it again: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
What things shall be added? If you go back to verse 25 and read up to verse 33, you'll find out. What things? All of the things that we are worried about! What are we going to eat? What are we going to wear? How are we going to pay the bills? These are all important questions, but more than that, they are questions that can cause us to lose our focus.
This verse tells us that if we will keep our priorities straight (i.e. - focus on accomplishing God's will), God will meet all our needs. Maybe not all our wants, but definitely all our needs.
But, when faced with so many questions and uncertainties, it's so easy to get distracted. It's so tempting to start scheming and plotting to find "the answers." The funny thing is that we know the answer. It's right in front of us. We just fail to do it. Why? Honestly, because sometimes it's not as easy as it sounds, but that's not a very good excuse. Is it?
So, as we face the questions and problems of today, let's try to "seek first the kingdom of God." Then, everything else will fall into place. It may not happen overnight, but it will happen. We have God's Word on it!
