First Things First

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33
Some people seem to read this verse from Matthew backward, as though spiritually dyslexic: “Add all these things to your life, and if you have any leftover time, seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness.”
But blessed are those who read it as Jesus intended.

What Do You "Live" For?

Jesus lived and died so that “those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again” (2 Corinthians 5:15). God’s love comes into your life to change what you live for.

Worship Courageously

I will praise You with my whole heart; before the gods I will sing praises to You.
Psalm 138:1
David was not ashamed of his God. He would boldly praise the God of Israel in the presence of false gods without worrying what anyone said or thought of him. Are you willing to do that today?
I can remember when it was very common to see families and others in restaurants bowing their heads and joining hands to worship and thank God before their meal. Our family does that, but I don’t see as many today as I used to. It is a wonderful way to encourage other families. People who are not ashamed to pray publicly to their God stand out in an age when it is common to be ridiculed for your faith.
