The First Thing

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33

For far too long the first thing I did when I got up in the morning was to check my cell phone.

For far too long the first thing I did when I got paid was to pay the bills that fueled my love affair with materialism.

For far too long the first thing I did was to put everything else first instead of God.

Honor the Lord by giving him the first part of all your income, and he will fill your barns with wheat and barley and overflow your wine vats with the finest wines.  Proverbs 3:9-10

For far too long ignorance, pride and fear kept me in the darkness.  Making God a mere footnote in the mess that was my life.

But now my life is illuminated by God’s light which guides my footsteps for His good.

In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.  Proverbs 3:6

 

God – The first thing when I awake

God – The first thing when I get paid

God- The first thing
