Matthew 6:33 is also NOT about finances.
Matthew 6:33 is also NOT about finances. Once again, Matthew 6 is not about finances. Much less verse 33. One of the most famous verses in the whole Bible. It is about putting God first in your life, seeking his kingdom, putting your faith in the one who saved you from eternal destruction, putting your faith in his blood for the forgiveness of your sins, and also seeking his righteousness, because only Jesus is righteous. He is the only one who has enough righteousness to impute it to your account so that you can be in the presence of the Lord for eternity. He takes our sins and gives us his righteousness. This is not about putting God first in your income and "doing it in the right way." This is blasphemous, because it is taking his name in vain, attributing a false teaching to Jesus. This is dangerous stuff.
