Jesus said in Matthew 6:33 to “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Notice the key in this verse: seek first the Kingdom. In other words, don’t seek the blessing, seek the One who blesses. Don’t be consumed by things. Don’t chase after money, fame, fortune or a bigger “this or that.” Instead, chase after God! If you will seek Him first, then all of His blessings will be added unto you. Not a few things. Not a half a dozen things. God is a God of abundance, and He says “ALL things.” In other words, when you keep Him first place, you won’t be able to contain all the good things that He will bring across your path! He’ll fill you to overflowing. He’ll give you things that money can’t buy. You can work 24/7, but you can’t buy health. You can’t buy strength. You can’t buy a good night’s rest. Seek first the Kingdom, and God will reward you!

That word “seek” is a strong word. One definition says “to require as a vital necessity.” That means we should consider spending time with God as vital to living a victorious life. That means no matter how we feel when we wake up, no matter how tired we are on Sunday morning, we are going to get up and honor God as if our lives depend on it!

Today, make sure things in life are in the right order—seek first God’s Kingdom. Seek His way of doing things. Honor Him at the start of your day and make it a part of your routine. As you do, you’ll see His reward on your life, and you’ll see all of His blessings added unto you!

can anyone tell me what this is about? [abastract dolmaenthusiast qasaweh sikoot]

"Black thugs in Cairo: Most of the crimes against activists and reporters are from South Sudan" - Sisi and his media outlets are trying to vilify people from Sudan for crimes “against journalists”, when in fact Sisi’s regime is known for its violent crimes against free journalism and against anti-regime activists. Anti-blackness is global - governments (and state media) continue to criminalize black peoples, so that their juntas are able to conceal their own crimes and atrocities. 
To summarize, the article is criminalizing refugees (which Egyptian media is known for). The first line of the article says that African refugees are criminal gangs who bring violence to Ain Sham, Nasr City, and to all the residents. The bitch author said that these “criminal refugees” need to be dealt with seriously in order to “preserve the reputation of Egypt’s international place, adversely affect tourism, and the country’s national income”. They admitted that most of these “thugs” are in their teens, then they characterized how these “thugs” look like: distinctive lengthwise clothing and gold and silver chains around their necks… Unbelievable.
Fucking ridiculous and nauseating.
Full shitty, racist article here.
