Josh 24:15 and Luke 12:31 "Seek The Kingdom" (April 12)

There is something so very appealing that our God Who sees and knows beckons us to keep the faith and seek His Kingdom. He knows the way we take. He sees what tugs at our heart---recognition, success, approval, meaning. And He invites us to live in the moment, present. For there is Someone Present in all of our moments and we do not face them alone. And it's an elderly Joshua who stands up to speak right before he dies. His last words. I don't think people today value the wisdom of the elderly like before. Joshua 22:31 God is in our midst because we have not broken faith. We live in repentance. Joshua 24:15 Choose this day whom to serve. Is it a decision we make with our minds? May God quicken our conscience and awaken our souls as only He can. To choose Whom I serve means: Luke 12:31 Seek the Kingdom and these things will not be added. One Thing Necessary ... Seek The Kingdom ... wonder what that means for me this lonely day?

  1. Laying up treasures in heaven or just “stuff” that moth and rust destroy? One appointed Day, the Master will say to us, “This night your soul is required of you.” And all the stuff to make our life comfy will be of no use. What Eternal treasures am I investing in, even in this early hour of the day, of each of my days, no matter how short or long-lived?

    “Now therefore fear the LORD and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD. And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
