When we look at these words of Jesus, we immediately find them to be the most revolutionary that human ears have ever heard. "...seek first the kingdom of God...." Even the most spiritually-minded of us argue the exact opposite, saying, "But I must live; I must make a certain amount of money; I must be clothed; I must be fed." The great concern of our lives is not the kingdom of God but how we are going to take care of ourselves to live. Jesus reversed the order by telling us to get the right relationship with God first, maintaining it as the primary concern of our lives, and never to place our concern on taking care of the other things of life.

I need this to sink into my heart. I need to stop being a rebel and a jerk.
Not a thing scheduled for today. May go check out an apartment in Wallingford later, though the appeal of moving has greatly diminished. I don't know what I want.
Going to get wet walking home. You'd think I'd know better. That applies across the board.
