The kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom. It is not natural or physical. It is not something you can see with your eye or touch with your hand. But it is more real than what is physical. It is an eternal kingdom. It is not temporary. It does not remain for only a short while and then falls like so many earthly kingdoms have throughout history. It last forever and ever-- it has no end, unlike this world that is slowly but surely passing away. "And of his kingdom there shall be no end." (Luke 1:33)
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God". Are you seeking that which is eternal? Or are you seeking (spending time, money, resources and effort) on what is temporary? Are you laying up treasures where moth and rust won't destroy and thieves don't break in and steal? Are you seeking those things that decay and pass away with time? Are you spending your life pursuing that which is like a vapor or the grass that withers? Are you seeking that which is spiritual? Righteousness, peace, holiness, joy in the Holy Ghost? Or are you living for self-- pleasure, entertainment, greed, always consuming your life on your own lusts and desires?
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God" means more than just giving Him first place and having your priorities in order. It involves as much "what" you seek as it does "when" you seek it. So are you seeking "first" His kingdom- is His kingdom priority in your life? Are you seeking "what" His kingdom is- that which is spiritual and eternal?
Have a great day. What are you seeking? The physical or the spiritual? The temporary or the eternal?
