It is important to be financially stable because it is important that your testimony becomes a reference of God’s greatness.
It is important that you take good care of your health because it is impossible to do what needs to be done when you are physically debilitated. It is important to have a structured family since the foundation for a good relationship with others stems from your relationship with your family.
“(For the Gentiles seek after all these things.) For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.” Matthew 6:32
There are other things that are also very important in the life of a servant of God, but unfortunately, what has happened is that the most important thing has been put in an equal position to or below all these things.
Would you like to know when a servant of God is entering the danger zone? Would you like to know when a servant of God is not spiritually well?
Would you like to know when he is far from God?
When this servant is not prioritising his soul, when taking care of his own soul is no longer his priority, when other things that do not involve taking care of his soul occupy the first place within this servant.
When you do not prioritise your soul, automatically, you will not take care of others. You will not be concerned with winning the souls of other people for the Kingdom of God.
Let’s take a look at the verse that follows the previous one:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you.” (Matthew 6:33)
Many who were once by our side in the meetings for those who serve are no longer among us today. Many who went out with us into the streets and alleys looking for the afflicted now find themselves walking down a bitter road, waiting for someone to come and rescue them.
Let’s take all this as an alert to keep our eyes on the altar, which sanctifies everything that is placed on it. Let’s not waste time worrying about material things if they are not being blessed on the altar.
