Seeking for the loaves

Do you ever seek God for the wrong reasons? Perhaps you want some material thing from God and you think if you serve Him for so long you will get it. Or perhaps you want something non-material from God. God desires that we seek Him for Himself. That we serve Him because He is worthy.

At one time, the disciples sought God for the earthly benefits. Jesus said to them, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled." These people did not seek God for Himself alone, but for their own purposes. What a tragedy! It is sobering to see how much we can miss out on who God is because we only look for what He gives us.

It is the mark of a young Christians when a people seek God for what He can provide for them. I would like to challenge you, seek God that you might glorify Him. Don’t limit your vision to your personal needs and wants. Ask God to change you so that you look at who God is and what He has done. Let His love inspire you to love Him, and that love inspire you to service.

"We love him, because he first loved us." – 1 John 4:19
