You've heard it a million times. Maybe more. From the pulpit. In Sunday school. From godly mentors. We Christians say it all the time.
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God and..." What comes next? "all these things shall be added unto you." This oft-quoted verse basically means that when you put God first, He provides everything you need. That's a pretty comforting thought considering the fact that most of you have a lot of life ahead of you, and you may be wondering just how it's all going to fall into place: college, career, marriage, etc. Just put God first, and He'll take care of it. Sounds simple enough.
But wait, Bible scholars. Who can tell me what words are missing from the verse I just quoted? Anyone know?
