In Matthew 6:33, Jesus tells us that we should seek FIRST the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. The word FIRST means that we need to have this be that which is foremost in our minds and reflected in our actions in day-to-day life. Being Kingdom-driven means to have God’s purposes and priorities (as stated in His law-word) be our purpose and priorities. So in a very real sense, being Kingdom-driven can be equated with being deliberate in our Christianity, with our chief end to glorify God by our obedience.
