What Seeketh Thou?

What is the number one thing people seek after in today’s society? What is on the top of your list, my list? How important is it really in the grand scheme of things? What is the motivation factor; self or the well-being of others? How much time and energy do we spend trying to reach that goal, and do we affect others in a positive or negative way while striving to achieve it? How much of it is pure selfishness without regard to others?

How much time do we spend deciding on what we will eat, drink, and wear on a daily basis, along with all of our other thoughts surrounding our desires and wants, compared to pondering the things of God and the lost souls around us?

Scripture declares [Matthew 6], “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

What things? “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.”

Scripture is not saying that we do not have a duty to work and provide for ourselves and our families, but the main focus is not to be unto ourselves but unto “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness.”

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

Where is your treasure, where is my treasure? Is it in the things of God, or the temporary things of this world?

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

We must choose this day who we will serve, whether to God or the flesh be given preeminence. Just remember, “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” [Galatians 6:8]

Tell me, “What Seeketh Thou?”
