It is tempting to join the crowd and pursue prosperity and honor. We should go after what we want, right? Not so fast. The way to all the things we not just want but need is found through God and his righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ.
Remember that Jesus similarly said, ““But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Jesus was referring to the preoccupations of many people about what to eat, drink or wear.
God wants us to go hard after him and he will take care of everything else.
That’s a promise.
