As is our culture, we become infatuated with improving ourselves spiritually and physically with the start of each new year. We determine to eat healthier, be kinder, and smile more in bettering our ourselves in the eyes of those around us. While it is never a bad idea to seek to become better, the Bible says that we need to seek something else first.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” – Matthew 6:33
When we focus all our efforts on seeking God, and strive to be like Christ, everything else in our lives should fall in place. We don’t need any other new year’s resolution than this: seek Him first!
