“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all this will probably be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).
Why, it appears, ought to wealthy, noble individuals not be happy? They have all of the conveniences for all times, however they’re very, very dissatisfied – extra dissatisfied than us poor individuals, generally extra dissatisfied than the poorest of us. This is exactly as a result of their soul, these wealthy and noble ones, is just not happy, as a result of their soul is just not full, they don’t give it non secular meals, that’s, they don’t take into consideration God, they don’t search the Kingdom of God, they don’t search justification for his or her predicament. God cares. Jesus Christ mentioned for all individuals, for all instances: “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all this will probably be added to you,” that’s, primarily search the Kingdom of God, need to be proper earlier than God, strive, take care – and you’ll all the time be full, calm and proud of every little thing in life. Without it, by no means.
Yes, the rationale for our dissatisfaction with life is in ourselves. From all the present enhancements, we are not any higher than earlier than, as a result of in our souls we don’t enhance, we don’t turn into higher.
Therefore, to begin with, search the Kingdom of God, and primarily reside in the best earlier than God, then you may be happy along with your earthly kingdom; then you’ll not be upset by human untruth. Our discontent is a illness of our soul, and nothing else. Amen.
