John 6:25-26, And when they found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither? Jesus answered them and said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat the loaves, and were filled.
Jesus had just fed thousands of people and those same people came searching for him the next day. They didn’t come because they realized he was the Saviour, they came because their tummies had been filled. Their motives was selfishness!
I’m gonna ask you the same question I asked myself this morning! Why do you seek God? Is it to get close to him, or deep down is it because you selfishly want something from him?
To tell you the truth I’ve done both. This is what I’ve come to realize. All I need is God. I must seek his face daily and try to live for him! As I live for him he provides everything I need! The problem arises when a person isn’t satisfied with their needs simply being met, they want that and a whole lot more.
Seek God with all you heart and allow Him to take care of you, your family and friends! He can do a better job at it than you can!
