Seek First

Foster's take on "seeking first the Kingdom of God" is an interesting concept.  The notion that one must "seek" prior to moving into the simple life is quite profound.  Many of us could give things away, but that does not necessarily demonstrate the inner change necessary for the simple life.  Simplicity could easily be equated with asceticism if it were not for the "seeking."  God does not desire poverty but simplicity.

On the other hand, I have known a few wealthy people who seemed to have a simple life.  They had not given all away, but they had developed a Kingdom first mentality that kept their heart in the right place.  Perhaps that is the sum of it all.  It's the heart and treasure thing.  Find the treasure, and you will know where the heart is.

"And all these things shall be added unto you."
