A life changing verse for me in just the past week has been "Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." ~Matt. 6:33
A lot of times we look at the end of the verse and use "seeking God" as a crutch to get things done for us. When in reality it is all about the first half of the verse. When it has all been said and done, we will be face to face with God...alone, we won't have our church, our family, our connections, it will just be me and God, what have I done for Him alone, not for myself or someone else. Living life for God alone is very rewarding! Especially when you aren't looking at the reward but at the saving face of God.
