How Do We Seek First the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness?

Matthew 6:33 gives us a powerful passage, for it tells us what to do in order to receive all what we need in this earthly life:

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

How do we seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness?

The context of this statement is given in Matthew 6:25-34:

Do Not Worry

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

The identifiers of the verses are given below:

633

From verse 25 till the end (verse 34), we can see how the numbers totaled themselves. At exactly verse 33, the total is 675. The 675th number in base 23 is 168. But 168 is the identifier of the Lord’s Prayer in the Gospel of Luke!

168

Conclusion: The Lord’s Prayer is the prayer that is for seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness!
