Description: Those who are redeemed by Jesus Christ are called to seek heavenly things, to make things that are good, pure, lovely, and virtuous our daily portion—just like a hearty, nourishing meal. Seeking and longing after heavenly things will never fail to bless us and fill our souls with contentment. When have we ever regretted helping someone in need, sharing our faith, worshipping with other believers, praising God, or using our talents to give glory to the Lord? Just as a healthy meal gives nourishment to our bodies, a daily portion of these heavenly things will nourish and satisfy our souls.

 

Hungering After Righteousness

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. (Matthew 5:6 KJV)

 

Seek Things Above

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. (Colossians 3:1 KJV)

 

The Lord is my Portion

The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. (Lamentations 3:24 KJV)

    Greetings
    I would like to talk about a personal issue about my faith in God and his effect in my life. I live in a country of poverty and it hurts me to even see an old man carry heavy material or even an old woman doing heavy work. I have a lot to talk about but i would prefer it be personal please. Thanks in advance.
