Above All Else

Colossians 3:1. Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

Keep seeking the things above. What things are above? God the Father and God the Son, Jesus, are seated above. We are to seek them and all they are: love, joy peace, faithfulness, goodness, etc. Our question is what do we really seek. Our prayers sound like we seek the hand of God rather than seeking Him. We pray,God do this, fix this, I need this. We seek what God can do for us instead of seeking Him. God says in Matthew 6:33 to seek His Kingdom first and all things will be given to us. There is nothing wrong with asking God for our needs but let’s keep our priorities straight. Let us seek God before all else. Let us seek to express our love and devotion for Who He is over what we can get from Him. God is worthy to be praised and worshiped above all else.
