How do I seek first God’s kingdom and righteousness?

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”  Matthew 6:33

            Seeking first God’s kingdom means putting him as a priority first.  Seeking means actively pursuing what God wants, his will and his kingdom reigning on earth.  It means setting aside your kingdom and your desires for what is best. 

            Seeking God’s righteousness is a personal pursuit for holiness and being right with God.  It’s daily working on your relationship with God through various disciplines.  While God’s kingdom is an outward pursuit, God’s righteousness is an inward pursuit.  Seeking both these things keeps your mind focused daily on God and his kingdom and not your selfish desires that only cause worry.
