WHAT ARE YOU SEARCHING FOR?

Matthew 6:19-33

6:19-21  Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust does corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:  20  But [do] lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust can corrupt, and where thieves do not [can not!] break through nor steal:  21  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the [spirituallife more than meat, and the body than raiment? 
6:24  No man [NO ONE, NO PERSON] can serve two masters: [!] for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [riches, wealth, prosperity].

6:32-33(For after all these things do the Gentiles [worldly, people who don't know or follow God in Christ] seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.
33 But seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all of these things shall be added unto you.
 Where ever  your heart is, that which you desire in life, determines what you are (or will be) searching for. The reverse is true as well. What you are searching for in life, shows where your heart and desire are. 
Now, remember:
Christ is talking specifically to those who call themselves People and/or Children of God (Yahweh, Jehovah God of the Bible).  

You say you are Christian, BUT you place the prosperity gospel/word of faith doctrine, pastors, preachers and ministers first and foremost in your life, look at what God is saying to you in His word. 
He says "Do what I have for you to do, and you will get what I have for you to get"
How can you be so mad and fight so hard toward me and others who share the truth of God's word with you? The message from God is simply saying there's no need to focus on the gift, but rather on the One who does the gifting! 
However, your focus shows where your heart truly is.
