  • Anthony Sims on Matthew 6:33
    In Matthew chapter5 6, Jesus took the 12 disciples upon the mountain to describe the kingdom of God. God is not of this world. The kingdom Jesus is referring to is a spiritual place where tangible physical things we feel, taste, hear see do not exist. Until I was granted eyes and ears to see and hear what God is saying to me this passage meant nothing to me. I had to cease praying for , a new car, a bigger house, and even basic necessities. I began praying for God to reveal himself to me. Because no matter how attentively I listened, no one could explain God to me. God cannot be explained, He must reveal himself. Something that happens when we stop chasing worldly things. Things of this world are not real. They will all be as dust very soon. I lost everything I own twice and I see what 's real now. Fellowship with Jesus and obedience to his commandment come first, and all else follows. And when God blesses us with things of this world we are to share with our bretheren.
  • Charles on Matthew 6:33
    It means doing away with earthly things and self edified wisdom but casting all your burden on God almighty because in Him we are complete
  • Shemdoe,Stanley on Matthew 6:33
    God created us for his own purpose and we are not the one to decide on how to live, to act and behave.So seeking first the kingdom of God is drawing our selves closer to God James 4:8 and he will be closer to us,then we shall know his will and act accordingly.This is the basic issue in christian life.Other things we need will be granted to us as additions. Don 't seek for addition,seek for a basic thing.

    Seek to do His will first, seek to know His Son who is also His righteousness, read and meditate on the word, and whatever else it takes through the power of God the Holy Spirit because we cannot do this on our own and as we do, He will furnish us with whatever and all we would otherwise have been focused our attention on getting or accomplishing.
  • Wanda Morant on Matthew 6:33
    I 'm to seeking the kingdom of God for all that I am and all that I do,I want to be in right standing with Him, wants to please Him. Because I don 't know how to do anything on my own, I seek Him daily, by seeking Him, I affirmed that God is with me,and helping me.and knowing that my,Almighty God Will see me through.
