TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING THE KINGDOM'S PRINCIPLES FOR LIVING (II)

Read Matthew 6:30-34
30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

MEMORISE:
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33).

EXPOSITION
There are thousands of Christian authors who have written books on laws or principles of success in life. Humanly speaking, virtually all of them have tried all they could to give guidelines for having in life. But as far as the Bible is concerned, the first law or principle of success for us is to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. If we seek first the kingdom of God, God is always faithful to keep His promise of adding all other things we are longing for to our lives.
Seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness is another Kingdom's principle for living on earth. What does it mean to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness? In a simple and straight-forward way, it means giving God first position in our lives and following His own way of doing things. It also means putting God first in our lives and follow His way of doing and being right. Also, it means to live for Him and make His kingdom our primary concerns.
God knows all what we need and He is committed to give them to us (Matt. 6:8,32). God doesn't want us to labour or overwork to be rich (Prov. 23:4). 'For the blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it' (Prov. 10:22). We are not here on earth to work to live, but we are to live to work. If we live our lives for God and make His kingdom our primary concerns, He will surely add all other things we need to live a better live (Psa. 34:19). Which one do you seek first, God's kingdom or the addition? Please, be faithful to your answer and do necessary adjustment if any.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Heavenly Father, help me to live my life for You all the days of my life.
2. Father, let Your Kingdom be my primary concern in whatever I do and in whatever step I take in life.
3. Pray for the youths in secondary schools and higher institutions to always give God first position in their lives.
