Jesus First, Everything else Later!
How many times have we tried other options realizing that it has and will never work?
Me: one too many!!! Yes I can attest that there have been many times where I put other things that seem to be important at the moment at the forefront of my life , forgetting that those things are temporary and God is eternal.
I sincerley thank God for another opportunity to get it right! Living my best life by putting Jesus first! ❤️🙌🏾❤️🙌🏾 #ButFirstJesus
Here are some key scriptures to commit to our lifestyles for putting God first :
Matthew 6:33 ESV
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Matthew 6:31-33 ESV
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Proverbs 16:3 ESV
Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:24 ESV
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
Galatians 2:20 ESV
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
He must increase, but I must decrease.”
