What do you pursue in your life? We pursue promotions, health, wealth, position, abilities, etc. However, do you pursue God with the same diligence and more? If God created the universe and created us, then you would think that he would be the object of most pursuit. However, I have found from my own observation, that God is typically the least pursued. I supose that is because we can't see God. Whatever the case, we simply do not pursue God with the same diligence that we pursue, say, a doctors program for a particular ailment.
What if we pursued God the way a man pursues a woman that he has become fond of or vice versa? What if we pursued God the way some pursue a particular position in the company the work for? I believe we would be much better in our lives if we pursued God and operated according to his ways. I believe that we would be much better if we trusted God for the things we need and want in our lives.
This video discusses this very topic of pursuing God above all else or more precisely, how we pursue so many other things instead of God.
