Pursuing

As we have been reading in Proverbs I came across this verse in Proverbs
21:21
“Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life,
righteousness, and honor.” I can’t help to think about our founding
document with the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But
if we truly want these things in our lives it comes from pursuing God. The
idea of pursuit to me is an action, a sense of straining toward the goal.
My prayer today is that I would pursue the things of God so much more then
the things of this world!
