Putting God F.I.R.S.T.

I was talking with someone the other day about how important it is to put God first in our lives. As we talked I shared with them a part of one of my previous sermons. I thought I would share it today…

Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.”

There are two things contained in this verse.

  1. Seek God’s Kingdom above all else
  2. Live righteously or live right.

This doesn’t need much explanation. It is pretty straight forward. It simply means to put God first place in our lives. A have a helpful acrostic about putting God FIRST.

F – Finances – Are you putting God first in your finances? Does He get the first portion or the leftovers? Are you living generously?

I – Interests – What are you most passionate about? What do you dwell on most of the time?

R – Relationships – Is God first in your relationships? Is He your most important relationship?

S – Schedule – Where does God fit into your schedule? Is He first or squeezed in somewhere? Is He left out?

T – Troubles – Where do you look to or lean on when troubles come your way? Is He your anchor in the storm?
