First Things First

This has been adapted from the commentaries of F.E. Marsh, coming soon to the Blue Letter Bible.

What the Lord says should be put first, should be followed, for He knows best.

1. Seeking

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).

2. Cleansing

“First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean” (Matthew 23:26).

3. Reconciling

“…leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother” (Matthew 5:24).

4. Taking

You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye” (Matthew 7:5).

5. Showing

let them first learn to show godliness to their own household” (1 Timothy 5:4).

6. Having

” It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops.” (2 Timothy 2:6).

7. Delivering

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
