“If Costco doesn’t have it, you don’t need it!”
A very good friend of mine loves to say this. Certainly for material goods, an excellent case can be made. I love shopping at Costco. There are great deals to be found and Costco always seems to be able to lure me into buying something that I may not necessarily need or want. Everyone needs to try focaccia pizzas or chocolate brownie crisps! And what about the blender/juicer than can meld several pounds of fruits and vegetables into a delicious smoothie? Well, I was wrong! I need it and Costco has it!
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
God does take care of our material needs. But He wants to do so much more for us. He desires to make us right with Him and take care of our deeper spiritual needs. And He took the initiative by giving us His Son, Jesus Christ, as our Lord and Savior.
Our material needs will always be there, but God has promised us that He will take care of this. But we first need to seek God in our life, through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Let’s rethink our priorities and seek God’s Kingdom first.
If God isn’t in it, you don’t need it!
Love and trust in the Lord; seek His will in your life.
