Seeking first

Matthew 6:33 ‘But seek you first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.’

The use of the word SEEK has bearing here. The word ‘seek’ is a verb or a doing word. It implies active pursuit and opposed to general interest. Being interested in a general way in the Kingdom of God is one thing, but to actively seek it is something else.  The word ‘seek’ means to search for, desire, require and demand it. It means that it needs to become our active passion and pursuit.
It is much like an investigator who would not rest until he/she gets to the bottom of the matter. They will not rest until a matter is resolved, finalized and finished. The implication is to seek, and to seek until you find what you looking for.  The idea is not to seek and then give-up and try again, but rather to seek with the intention to find.
There needs to come a determination in our hearts and lives. It is not just a matter of floating along, but a matter of a determined heart. It is not a matter of default but a matter of a quality choice. We are to seek the things of God as a priority over the things of the world.  This should change the way we live our lives.
