What Do You Seek?

What do you wish would change in your life? Sometimes it’s

difficult to see how seeking God’s kingdom above everything else

can help us in other spheres of our lives. When the Lord appeared

to Solomon in a dream, He said:


“Ask what you wish Me to give you,” Solomon’s reply was,

“Give your servant an understanding heart to judge Your

people to discern between good and evil”

(1 Kings 3:9).

Because Solomon was seeking God’s rule above his own, God

granted him beyond what he asked. Seek God’s kingdom first—

everything else God will provide. If you have everything but don’t

have Christ, you have nothing; if you have nothing but have

Christ, you have everything!
