Keep God First

Verse of the Day:   Matthew 6:33      

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

This is the time of year when we start thinking about our New Year’s resolutions. We decide to make changes and declare goals that will help to improve our lives. The year 2021 was another difficult year for many people. Yet, if we believe in God, we have hope for a better year in 2022. The Bible tells us that that if we seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness, He will take care of all our needs. Our main focus for 2022 should be to have a closer relationship with the Lord, studying His Word and living according to His will. Set your mind on things above and let your thoughts and goals be focused on Christ and your future home, heaven. As you contemplate your New Year’s resolutions be mindful to include goals that allow you to put God first in your life. Set goals that bring you closer to God daily and long-term. You can reach your goals when you make specific plans and stick to them.

Heavenly Father, as we begin to make plans for the new year, help us to seek You first. Help us to put You first in our daily lives and in our long-term goals. Let us focus on You in all we do so that we may grow closer to You. Amen
