6:33 Seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness - Singly aim at this, that God, reigning in your heart, may fill it with the righteousness above described. And indeed whosoever seeks this first, will soon come to seek this only.
View People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:33
Mt 6:33 Seek ye first the kingdom of God. The promise is made that if we seek it first, and its righteousness, all earthly wants will be supplied. The condition demands, (1) That we seek the kingdom "first" in point of time. Some propose to secure a competence, and after they have gained it, they will serve God. (2) We must make it "first" in importance. Everything else must give way before its demands. (3) It must be "first" in our affections, have our whole hearts. We must "love the Lord our God with the whole heart" (Mt 22:37). His righteousness. The righteousness that God bestows upon those who are in the Kingdom, Christ's righteousness, the forgiveness of sins in his name.

Without God coming first in our lives we cannot please him.God is our source for every need in our lives.He will supply all your needs when you truly walk with him in spirit and ask him daily to direct your path, everything else is will fall into place when you live only to serve him in heart and soul.

I believe that the Lord has spoken it all. There is no need to worry about materialistic things. I found out when you are Seeking the things of God and his rightouness for our lives, and doing whats right in the Lords sight, than he will take care of his own!! He said it in His word that all shall be added unto you, the things that you have need of and or concern with. God Will provide!! Praise God!!

Seeking the kingdom of God is working on our faith in God by studying His teachings and putting them into practice in our lives. That is OBEDIENCE. As we grow in faith, we continue on to discern His will for us. Though at times it may not be to our wishes, we should completely submit to Him. That is TRUST. Let us not forget that in our seeking, we do not travel alone but should recognize Christ as the "light of the world". That is giving GLORY, HONOR, and PRAISE to our God. Follow Him as He would in all your plans, dreams, daily affairs... and in all these things order will fall into place in His time.

I think itís tapping into the spiritual understanding of Godís intention when he created man and woman, acknowledging his supernatural powers.

God is the author of our lives, and there is nothing that we can do successfully on our own without His acknowledgement.

God is amazing. Seeking the kingdom of God and his righteousness is one of the most powerful things you can do! All of these earthly things mean nothing to me. My God is my EVERYTHING!

Make God's program, purpose and desire your priority and all the things other people are dying for will be added to you. It is God's way of financing his program in your Life.

It is a powerful scripture that if we walked in it as Christians we would have less to worry about, itís simple. As we dwell in his presence he takes care of all we need; isnít that awesomeÖ

Simple, but unchangeable principle for blessing. If we want to be blessed, we should seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness first.

In whatever we do, we need the presence Of GOD.

When you are addicted to God, then the blessing of God will be focused on you.

As we become the doers of the word but not only the hearers, God Blessings are endless.
Preye's comment on 2012-12-02 17:33:05:
The message of the verse is explaining about our spiritual foundation. There are so many Christian beliefs as regarding the right path to success in life, and to make heaven. Matthew 6:33 tells us that without the kingdom of God whatever we achieve in life is worthless, because the most important riches in life is to inherit God's kingdom. Once we inherit God's kingdom, then we will find fulfillment in all our endeavors.

The truth that needs grace from GOD to follow nevertheless, even in little things, we can see that it is the truth and the way to get good things from GOD.

In all thing will should put God first. Let God be first

I recall a minister putting it like this:
seek God and do what is right. That is what I remember.
Dr Vijay Saradhi's comment on 2012-09-11 10:01:51:
God the Holy Spirit revealed me to understand Matthew 6:33 in a way that first seek his kingdom and his righteousness refer to Jesus. Jesus said 1) first seek his kingdom means seek him in prayer where we surrender to the Lord for his Lordship on our life. 2) Seek his righteousness means seek Jesus by meditate up on his Word where we get faith and by faith we will become righteous. Therefore when we have these two in our lives, God will grant our needs. Praise be to God.
Robert Teye's comment on 2012-06-07 08:39:18:
Definetly Seeking God first and His righteousness must be our forever priorit ih this life because without God we are nothing, if you beleive that say AMEN.
Judith's comment on 2012-01-01 19:22:26:
When I read this scripture the words that comes to mind is "Faith", "Trust" and "Obedience". As humans we have a tendency to dwell on the things of this earth which are materialistic and transient in nature. By seeking God first we are really exercising our faith in Him. Everything that we think we need cannot come close to what God can give/do for us when we put Him first in our lives.
