What Would Jesus Say to Joe Rogan: You are a Sincere Seeker, Seek Me
Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Joe Rogan is known for his intense pursuit of knowledge, with his podcasts covering a wide range of topics from science and technology to politics and culture. He has become a role model for those who desire to expand their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. However, as followers of Jesus Christ, we are reminded that the pursuit of knowledge should always be with the purpose of seeking God's kingdom first.
In Matthew 6:33, Jesus instructs us to seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to us as well. This means that our ultimate priority should be to seek God and his will for our lives. While knowledge and understanding are important, they should never take precedence over our relationship with God.
Joe Rogan's passion for knowledge is admirable, but we can also see how it can be easy to become consumed by the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake. Jesus desires for us to seek him first, to seek his wisdom and understanding, and to use our knowledge in service of his kingdom.
Let’s place God first in our lives today by investing time in pursuing knowledge of him. Spend some time reading Matthew 6 and answer the question, “What does this tell me about God?”
Dear Lord, we thank you for the gift of knowledge and understanding, but we recognize that our ultimate priority should be to seek you and your kingdom first. Help us to seek you first in all we do so that we can show your love and grace to those around us. In Jesus' name, Amen.
