“Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.”
Proverbs 3:9-10 KJV
Many people ask the question “How do I live a blessed life?” The answer is to keep God first! Many of us take the best and first fruits for ourselves because we feel like we work hard so we deserve the best. The fact is since God is our source of everything we should give him our best and our first fruits but we tend to give him what is left over thus we receive what looks like table scraps. Now I am not teaching you to give to get from God, instead I am saying if you remember and honor the one that gives the blessings you will become one of those that he does not mind blessing. This is not just talking about money blessings but blessings of Joy, Peace and Love as well.
Give God your best not just what you have left!
