Recently, I was reminded of this verse in Matthew. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all these things will be added unto you". Lately I have been caught up in the whirlwind of trying to finish everything up before I graduate this year, and it has been discouraging at certain points, as I have been behind in a few subjects.
As I read this verse, I realized that God is more interested in me seeking Him and being caught up in the things of Him, than He is in me learning about logarithms or knowing what "equilibrium position" or "uniform circular motion" are. Not that these things aren't important, but God calls us to seek Him before everything else.
See, I'm not a math and science type person, so those subjects don't come very easy for me, but I believe it is important to have that knowledge. I'd much rather be strengthening my skills in piano, learning the guitar, broadening my cooking abilities, creating things, and I could go on forever. However, God puts things in our lives so that we will grow in wisdom, and learn to depend on Him in all circumstances. As we seek Him, we will know more and more about what He wants for our lives, which will then help us to stay focused on what He has us doing right here and now.
