Do not store up for yourselves treasures on the earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves dig through and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not dig through nor steal.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Because of this, I say to you, Do not be anxious for your life, what you should eat or what you should drink; nor for your body, what you should put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than clothing?
For all these things the Gentiles are anxiously seeking. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Matthew 6:19-21, 24-25, 32-33
As we approach the end of this age we must actively pursue the Lord in order to hasten His return. In order to “seek first His kingdom” we need to give Him the first place in all things (Colossians 1:18). In order for us give Him the first place, we must love him with our whole heart (Mark 12:30). It is with this burden that we offer these songs and hymns to the Lord, that through them many young people would give the Lord the preeminence in their daily living.
“Give yourself to love the Lord. No other way is so prevailing, and no other way is so safe, so rich, and so full of enjoyment. Just love Him. Do not care for anything else. Teachings, doctrines, gifts, and power do not mean much. We must continually tell the Lord, “Lord, keep me in Your love! Attract me with Yourself! Keep me all the time in Your loving presence!”
