"Strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these
things will be given to you as well."  ~Matthew 6:33

"Strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these
things will be given to you as well."  We need not seek material things
first, but seek spiritual things first and material things will come to us,
as we honestly work for them.  Many of us seek material things first and
think they can then grow into knowledge of spiritual things.  We cannot
serve God and earthly things at the same time.  The first requisites of an
abundant life are spiritual things: honesty, purity, unselfishness and love.
Until we have these qualities, quantities of material things are of little
real use to us.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may put much effort into acquiring spiritual things.  I pray
that I may get right spiritually and enjoy the many gifts around me.

home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
