“Seek ye First the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these thing shall be added unto you…”

~ “Seek Ye First”
UMH 405

We’re all seeking something.  On the way home from Sunday evening worship Edee and I drove past a large group of teenagers.  All of them were staring intently into their cell phones as if they were looking for something.  We realized that they were participating in the latest game craze, Pokémon Go.  Apparently, this new phone app and game is taking the country by storm and young and old alike are searching for Pokémons.  I am told that the game recently stopped traffic in Times Square in New York as hordes of people sought to “capture” a rare Pokémon.  Amazing!

Holy Scripture talks about asking and receiving, seeking and finding.  It directs us to utilize our resources to seek after the kingdom of God above all else.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there were hordes of people using cell phones to locate First United Methodist Church on Sunday evening in order to “capture” an opportunity to worship God and encounter His kingdom!

I’ll see you in church Sunday!
