Mat. 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. I often hear people say in reference to this passage that God is first, family is second, and work is third. May I say that if this is your philosophy you are not seeking God at all. The passage has no second or third. It is saying seek ye first (only) the kingdom of God. When we are doing that we are following how God tells us to deal with Him, the family, our work, and everything else in our lives. Again it is God only, not God and then other things as we never get done of taking care of God's business. Col. 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
