The more I experience life, the more I realize that if we want anything in life we must go after it.
This principle encompasses both the material as well as the spiritual world. Whether it is for food, a job, sales, a wife, love or the kingdom of God, we must seek after it. Almost anyone that we are looking for must be sought after earnestly, it must be chased, it must be pursued.
But as I write these words I'm also reminded the words of Matthew 6:33 to seek FIRST his Kingdom. That the first priority (but not the exclusive one) is His Kingdom. Then all the things like houses, property, money, riches, happiness will come about. All side effects of seeking God.
