But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33, KJV).
Man’s life is in stages and each stage should be fully maximized to God’s glory, one’s fulfillment and the benefit of others. To be fulfilled one must, first of all, see life as a blessing and not a burden. This helps us to be grateful to God for it instead of grumbling about it. Then, one must seek to understand God more and more through His word. As he graduates from one stage of his life to another, seeking to understand God is man’s greatest source of sustenance.
Understanding God’s ways has an automatic way of building man’s faith in God, irrespective of the present situation of his life. It also increases how he grows in his love for God and others. He becomes surer and surer of God’s constant presence and unfailing help in all circumstances. Lastly he gets actively involved in the service of God’s kingdom. In his privileged capacity, he gets busy expanding God’s kingdom with his time, gifts and resources.
The importance you attach to anything is seen in the quality of time you devote to it. When someone or something means so much to you, you find yourself engrossed with that person or thing. So whether you are aged, a young adult or an adolescent; whatever the stage of life you are in right now; there is no better time than now, to find a better way of serving God than you are presently doing. The words of the Lord Jesus in Matthew 6:33 cannot be over-emphasized: ‘But more than anything else, put God’s work first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well (CEV).’ There’s no greater secret of true fulfillment. I pray, God’s investment on us shall not amount to a total waste. In Jesus mighty name!
Today’s corporate prayer: I shall not be a disappointment to the Lord. In the name of Jesus!
