Passionately Pursue

Look at the things that you are seeking first–what do you care most about?–and go to the bottom line: How lasting are they?  How permanent?  Can you depend on them?

And when we answer that question, we come to the conclusion that the only thing worth pursuing is not popularity (what people say and think about us) because we know that changes.  And it’s not money because we know that goes away and we always want and need more. And we know that it’s not some kind of physical pleasure because that only lasts for a moment and usually leaves us with more regret than before…

The truth is we are all going headlong after something. We’re really intensely pursuing, seeking, worried about something…What is it we are so passionate about? …

Let’s passionately pursue God. Let’s seek Him first.  Let’s give Him all the zeal that we give our sports team, and let’s give Him all the love that we give our families, and let’s give Him all the time that we give our stuff. Let’s let God have it all.Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
