We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We are disciples of Christ - representatives of Him and His church. We must do as Jacob says and seek first for the Kingdom of God.
In verse 19, we see a powerful promise of deliverance and blessings. After we obtain a hope in Christ, we shall obtain whatever else we seek. We will obtain riches and resources, with which we can serve and make a difference. When we put the Savior first, everything else will fall into place. I have witnessed this in my life time and time again, and am currently enjoying the blessings that come from putting the Lord at the center of my life. In an unstable and ever changing world, let the Lord be your anchor, your constant. He wants nothing more than your happiness and success. Trust in His goodness. He will never fail you.
