From: Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear by Max Lucado, Thomas Nelson, 2009.
“Seek first the kingdom of wealth, and you’ll worry over every dollar. Seek first the kingdom of health, and you’ll sweat every blemish and bump. Seek first the kingdom of popularity, and you’ll relive every conflict. Seek first the kingdom of safety, and you’ll jump at every crack of the twig. But seek first his kingdom, and you will find it.” ~ Max Lucado
What do I seek first? Do any of the points Max Lucado mentions in this paragraph resonate especially for me? It's good to have goals in all areas of life, but what is my primary goal – and how do my other goals fit into it? Do any of the other goals conflict, and how can I make my secondary goals support what I seek first?
