But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Jesus teaches priorities. He wants His followers to know what truly matters in life. If the kingdom of heaven and righteousness are our priorities then the rest of life’s needs and wants will be satisfied.
Our needs and wants will be satisfied because they will be in line with God’s will, rather than our own. If we lack, it is because our priorities are askew. We are chasing after things that will not last or satisfy.
Only living in the Father’s will, will we find true satisfaction. Only there will all our deepest wants and needs be satiated. Chasing after the things of the world will never truly meet our spiritual needs. It’s all about priorities.
