Last fall during a morning message we were challenged from these words in Matthew 6:33-34:
As a visual reminder, we given a tea bag and invited to imagine what it would be like if our lives were steeped in God’s truth? In God’s reality? Other versions of this passage start with this phrase: Seek first the kingdom of God. How exactly do we seek something like the kingdom of God in the first place? And how do we seek that first, above all else? I’m pretty sure of one thing: if we’re seeking something vital to our lives, the search consumes us. Which leads me back to the word “steep” and the idea of infusion. I do want my life to be all about God’s reality. God’s iniative. And God’s provisions. And ultimately I long for my life to offer an inviting fragrance to those around me of this life God offers.
