What does it look like to "seek first his kingdom"?

Read Matthew 6:33-34 aloud: "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

  • These words of Jesus come in the middle of a passage in which he tells us not to worry. What do you think it means to "seek first his kingdom"? What kind of kingdom is Jesus talking about?
  • Describe how people seeking first the kingdom would act. What would you notice about their checkbook and calendar? What other defining characteristics would you see in them and in their lifestyle?
