1    Introduction:  The Issue of Priorities


Matthew 6:31-34  “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.”


·         The priority of unsaved people is on how to have needs met.

·         Gentiles “seek” (1934 Strongs) = to search, crave, demand.

·         Result is anxiety and stress

·         “Take no thought” (3308 Strongs) = to be anxious, divided, distracted.

·         What you focus upon, you open your inner man to.

·         God does not expect you to ignore your responsibilities or fail to plan ahead.

·         God is aware of your needs and will provide them if you place Him first.
