What does it mean to "seek first the kingdom of God"?


Putting God first in our lives!

Thank you for asking a question on www.thisisyourbible.com

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

What Jesus means is that the most important thing in our lives should be that of trying to attain to the Kingdom of God. Doing the things which will get us into the kingdom of God should come first and take precedence over everything else that we do in our lives.

The kingdom of God (or the kingdom of heaven) is not somewhere that we go when we die; it will be established on earth when Jesus Christ returns from heaven. Those who have made it their priority in this life will be raised from the dead to eternal life in this kingdom. If we want to be part of it we must believe and obey the gospel that was preached by Jesus and the apostles.
