Part 1: Today
We all have priorities… family, work, self-care. But no matter how many things compete for our attention, God didn’t leave any question about what needs to be our first priority. For every new “Today” we are given, our top priority is always to be the same… “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.”Fill-in Notes
Take Away / Application
- Face every day seeking the Lord first, pursuing purity, and expecting God’s provision.
- Asking, Lord, how can I make today count?
Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group or branch off with additional questions as discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.
- What does the typical start of your day look like?
- Read Matthew 6:33–34.
- To seek the kingdom, we must seek the Lord first. What does it look like for you to actively seek and put the Lord first in your day?
- Discuss Jesus having a place, prominence, or preeminence in our lives? What are the differences between each of these? How do you or can you make Jesus preeminent in your daily life?
- What does it look like to seek Jesus’ rule and reign in our lives? Hint: In your notes, review the three things that you will automatically seek. Discuss how these three things can increasingly become a part of your daily walk with Christ.
- What are the main things you worry about?
- How have you seen God provide for your needs? Share.
- In your notes under “four lessons parents should teach their children early”, how do these points apply to you as an adult?
- What did God impress upon your heart from this message? In what way(s) do you need to change or apply truth from God’s Word? Ask your group to help keep you accountable to these things.
