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

People say they want to put God first in everything they do, but their actions may contradict their confession.

They want to put God first, but the first thing they do when they wake up is check their email, scroll through social media, or text a friend. Some may say they’re not a morning person. That’s understandable, but some of those same people get distracted by managing a family in the evening, watching their favorite TV shows, and again, scrolling through social media. The next thing we know it’s late, we’re sleepy, and we haven’t been in the presence of God all day.

If we have to lose sleep or shut ourselves up in a room to prioritize God, that’s what we should do because the benefits of prioritizing God outweigh all of those other things.

Psalm 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
