Seeking God First

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Matt 6:33

God is the Creator of all.
Legally speaking, our life belongs to Him alone. Our life is never ours to begin with.
Hence, it is reasonable that in everything we do, we want to be pleasing unto Him.
It also makes sense that we always put Him first in everything we do.
How do we know we have put God first in our lives?
Probably the following acronym as taught by Canon J. John can help us answer that question.

F = Finance
Tithing teaches us to put God first. (Deut 14:23, TLB)

I  = Interest
Is our hobby pleasing the LORD?

R = Relationship
If we are not careful, we may subconsciously replace God with the desire to get married.

S = Schedule
Do we maintain regular quiet time in addition to attending church service and cell group meeting?

T = Trouble
Is prayer our first reaction in a difficult situation?

If we are faithful in these 5 areas, chances are God is indeed the first in our lives.
