The God-First Life

Matthew 6:33 tells us "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." (NKJV) There are often as many ways to approach a problem as there are problems to approach. In seeking God, which approach is the right one to take? In this book, Stovall Weems reminds us that often, the best way to look at something is to strip away the extraneous and view what matters - in this case, living a life that puts God first. If we follow the instructions given in Matthew 6:33 - it is broken down into its most basic level. Seek first the kingdom of God!

Putting God first in your life does not mean, in my interpretation, to do so when you get around to doing so. If HE is at the front and center, all else will fall into place as it should. Put God first! He will work things out according to His plan. His plan for my life is different from His plan for your life, and that is okay because we are different, even though our ultimate goals may be very similar. Everyone has a different journey, even if their final destinations are the same. When the priority (God First) is established, the way becomes clearer.

Putting God first does not mean that the road will be always smooth, nor does it mean that every answer will immediately become clear. What it does mean is that you are not, nor will you be, alone in your travel. If you put God first, He will be your guide through rough spots, your calm in the storm, and your GPS with correct directions! The most complex can be made simple, by making your number one priority making God first.

A relatively quick read, filled with useful information and no platitudes. Read it. You won't regret it.
