Seeking First God’s Kingdom – Konkel

Seeking first God’s kingdom in the wealth of this world is a daily discipline, a continous and conscious choice to use money and resources to further the values of the kingdom of God and to bring others into that kingdom. The choices are not easy, and they are not without compromise. The mercy of God is to be found for the motives of those who participate in the economy of the great harlot, as they are in this world, but at the same time we must seek always to bring justice and good news to the weak and the needy.

August H. Konkel, 1 & 2 Kings, The NIV Application Commentary (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2006), 544.
