What Are You Seeking?

I don’t think we have ever witnessed a more materialistic society than what we have today. Everywhere you go many are concerned about material things, even in some of our churches we have equated material things to mean that you are blessed of the Lord. People are striving and wearing themselves out in search of that material blessing, no wonder corruption is on a high in our nation today because many will do anything to look the part. But it should not be so among those of us who know Christ and the power of his resurrection.
Matthew 6:31-33
31 Therefore do not worry or be anxious (perpetually uneasy, distracted), saying, ‘What are we going to eat?’ or ‘What are we going to drink?’ or ‘What are we going to wear?’ 32 For the [pagan] Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; [but do not worry,] for your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.
Jesus is telling us something very important in these scriptures. There should be a difference between those who believe and those who do not and that difference should be seen in what we seek.
The gentiles, talking about those who do not know God seek after and worry about what they will eat and drink and what they will wear, that is what they live for and thus that is what occupies their mind. The gentile will do all they can do, involve themselves in whatever as long as they get what they need.
As for us the children of God, those who have believed, Jesus says that our focus should be different. We should seek after the kingdom of God, that is where our drive should be and as we do that then the God we seek after will provide what we shall eat and drink and what we shall wear because He knows that we have need of these things.
When you take stock of your life, what is it that you are seeking after? What is the driving force of all that you are doing? Are you seeking after the kingdom of God and his righteousness or are you seeking after the things we now call “The Blessings?”
Bottom line, what you are seeking after reveals where your heart is
