(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.

    Mathew 6:14 "For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you." SIMPLE SCRIPTURE TO UNDERSTAND BUT SOMETIMES IS HARD TO DO! THINK ABOUT IT LIKE THIS: WHO ARE WE TO NOT FORGIVE THE HURT SOMEBODY CAUSED US, WHEN WE CAUSED HURT TO GOD BY NOT ONLY SINNING, BUT HAVING TO SEE HIS ONLY SON TREATED LIKE AN ANIMAL JUST TO SAVE OUR SOULS FROM A BURNING HE
