Are we seeking the right thing?

Some people are satisfied to let life go by and not think much of how things could be different. But many are seeking for something. That something may be changing their hair color, multiple affairs, drinking binges, wearing outlandish clothes. A few go on shooting sprees before killing themselves.

What does Jesus say about “seeking”. Well in Luke 11: 9-10 He says “seek and you will find…he that seeks finds” a little later he says “seek not” a little bit after that he says “but rather seek”( Luke 12: 29-31) So Jesus approved of seeking , but he told us that not all seeking brings the desired results.

When Jesus said “seek not” he was referring to food and clothing. Does Jesus not care if we are cold or hungry? The answer is in verses 31 and 32.”but rather you seek the kingdom of God, and all things shall be added to you ..for it is your Fathers good pleasure to give you the kingdom”

How are we to seek the Kingdom of God? You really can’t if you don’t have a personal relationship with God through the Holy Spirit. When you have that relationship, then you can communicate with the Holy Spirit through prayer. God also speaks to us through His Word. He wants you to have a happy productive life, being Christlike and shining your light in the world.

So lets keep on seeking but ask ourselves “am I seeking for the right things in the right place?” Jesus said “for what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?'”(mark 8:36)
Satan promises much fun and satisfaction if we go seeking his ways ,but he is a liar. Jesus doesn’t promise an easy life but a fulfilling one, with the greatest reward in the life to come.; What a contrast! Amenl
