his righteousness, and all these
things will be given to you as
well” (Matthew 6:33).
A newspaper reporter asked Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonald’s, what he believed in. “God, my family, and
McDonald’s hamburgers!” he replied. Then he added, “And when I get to the office, I reverse the order.”
Many churchgoers put God first—on Sunday mornings—but the rest of the week they reverse the order. In Matthew 6:33, Jesus told us to seek first God’s kingdom and his righteousness. Jesus meant that to apply not just to our church life, but to our jobs, our leisure time, and our family life.
So let’s put God first in this time of worship and in every area of our lives. Isn’t that the least we can do for the Lord who sought us first and foremost when we were lost in sin?
