God First, Then Extras (Spurgeon’s Faith’s Checkbook)

From Charles Spurgeon’s “Faith’s Checkbook”
God First, Then Extras

October 25
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33)

See how the Bible opens: “In the beginning God.” Let your life open in the same way. Seek with your whole soul, first and foremost, the kingdom of God, as the place of your citizenship, and His righteousness as the character of your life. As for the rest, it will come from the Lord Himself without your being anxious concerning it. All that is needful for this life and godliness “shall be added unto you.”
What a promise this is! Food, raiment, home, and so forth, God undertakes to add to you while you seek Him. You mind His business, and He will mind yours. If you want paper and string, you get them given in when you buy more important goods; and just so all that we need of earthly things we shall have thrown in with the kingdom. He who is an heir of salvation shall not die of starvation; and he who clothes his soul with the righteousness of God cannot be left of the Lord with a naked body. Away with carking care. Set all your mind upon seeking the Lord. Covetousness is poverty, and anxiety is misery: trust in God is an estate, and likeness of God is a heavenly inheritance. Lord, I seek Thee; be found of me.

Committed for Life (Daily Prompt, Committ)

Back in 1984, I committed my life unto the Lord after he saved me and changed my heart. In no way am I perfect, but I have been forgiven.
I am so thankful that He loves me, and my sins are forever forgotten.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 KJV

Committed unto the Lord, I give my life,
To be a servant and each day a better wife.

A mom, grandma, and a teacher too
desiring to please God, whatever I do.

I want to be a light, and with my heart share,
Desiring to help others,for I really do care.

Through His word, prayer, and songs,
To Him, I know to Him my life belongs.
