Matthew 6:33

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Seek! That is the focus word in this verse. This word is a robust word, describing a passionate pursuit of something to make it our own. The Kingdom, and the righteousness of those in this Kingdom, are not our wish, our hope, our dream -- they are to be our passion. We will pursue God's Kingdom at all costs. We will pursue it with passion. This will be our consuming effort until we make it our own, or better yet, find it our home!

My Prayer...

Forgive me, dear God, for letting my passion for your Kingdom and your character get pushed to the side. Awaken me each morning with a sense of passion for your work and your will for that day. Father, I want to be a passionate seeker; please make me restless for your Kingdom as my home. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
