As much as affluence is what a lot of us wish for, the Bible admo
nishes us to seek first the kingdom of God and every other thing
shall be added unto us. The problem with most of us is that we b
egin to seek first the 'other things' instead of seeking first the king
dom of God.
call this misplacement of priorities. Abnormal things happen when
we dont put the first things first in our lives. We need to set our
priorities right. As much as it is good for you to be rich inwardly
and outwardly, your first priority should be to have the fear of God
and seek His kingdom first.
Also, seeking God's kingdom doesn't mean we should disregard all
our physical needs. If God intended that for us, He wouldn't have s
aid that ..and every other thing shall be added unto you'. (See Mat
As much as you desire to live a wealthy life, let God's kingdom be
the paramount thing in your heart. Ensure that it is your priority.
Many are living terrible lives today because they have ruled God ou
of their lives
Remember a Christ-less life is a life full of crisis. Accept Jesus fir
st as your Lord and saviour and He will definitely make you afflue
nt. Yes, I can say that anywhere. No one enters into a business tr
ansaction with God and loses; no one maintains a cordial relations
hip with God and lacks. Ive seen this to be true. God always satis
fies such a hungry soul with the good things of life.
