Given all that life places before us, what is our top priority? Well, we aren’t left with numerous possibilities. Jesus clearly gave us the top priority:
"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things will be given you" (Matthew 6:33).
In effect, he said this is your top priority. Charles Swindoll wrote of this top priority by stating the following in his book Living Above the Level of Mediocrity. He states, “…If I am to seek first in my life God’s kingdom and God’s righteousness, then whatever else I do ought to relate to that goal: where I work, with whom I spend my time…. Every decision I make ought to be filtered through the Matthew 6:33 filter: where I put my money, where and how I spend my time, what I buy, what I sell, what I give away. That means a two-pronged question needs to be asked each time: Is it for His kingdom? Does it relate to His righteousness?”
