GIVE UP A POVERTY MENTALITY
See yourself as royalty. You are a child of the King of kings. Refuse to live with a poverty mentality. It is not wrong to have material wealth. It is not about having things. It is about things having you. True riches come through knowing Me. Earthly riches are temporal, however, they are still necessary. Seeking My Kingdom first means that everything you do in this life should be run through My filter first.
Ask how you can use what I have already given you to further My Kingdom in the earth. If you have little to give, then ask for seed for the sower. While you are waiting, sow what you do have. It may be a physical possession, but oftentimes it is something spiritual; a gift or a talent that you can offer. I see the smallest seeds that you sow for the Kingdom; a word of kindness, a hug, a phone call, a letter, text or email.
Notice that Jesus stopped to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people. Therefore, think like a royal and use your wealth, power and influence to build My Kingdom.
