The struggle to seek God first in the midst of a world that is clamoring for our attention is is real. Especially when it comes to issues pertaining to our money. Come explore this conundrum with me and I promise we will do our part to encourage, entertain and enlighten you on the journey. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33
What is most valuable to you? For most of us, the things of this world are more valuable than the things of God. But by God's grace, He helps us to find value in what is eternal instead of what is temporal. In this episode, I explore the treasure of the kingdom of God and testify of God's goodness to me when I was called to quit a lucrative job and step out into the unknown.
Rev. Jason Halloway and I take a look at prayer in the kingdom of God and why it is that Jesus taught us how to pray in Matthew 6:5-13. How does our prayer life look if we are going to be about the business of the kingdom of God.

In this episode we are joined by Rev. Christopher J. Holland, II, Pastor of New Spirit Community Presbyterian Church.

In the story of the Rich Young Ruler in Matthew 19:16-26, Jesus has an encounter with a young man who has done well for himself financially and morally, according to him. But when he is given the standard for entering into Jesus' kingdom, it proves to be too much for him to take. We will be joined by Rev. Dr. Drick Boyd, Professor of Urban and Interdisciplinary Studies at Eastern University to serve as our conversation partner here. Find Drick at www.drickboyd.org
If we are to seek the kingdom, then we should first understand what it is. And fundamentally, a kingdom has to have a king. But what does that even mean to us and how should this govern how we handle money? Join us as we invite my husband, Frederick to discuss our Lord Jesus as a king.
