Proverbs Soap Challenge Day 3
Today's passages are from NIV.
Scripture - Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. Proverbs 3:9-10
Observation - What I see in these verses is that we are to give of the wealth God has given us. That word "firstfruits" means before ANYTHING else. And in doing this we will be overflowing w/ what we NEED, not what we may want but what we NEED.
Application - When looking at myself, am I giving from our paycheck before anything else? When someone gifts us with something am I honoring the Lord first? These are things I need to look in my life.
Prayer - Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for providing all my needs. Help me to give freely of my "firstfruits." Lord I want to honor you in all ways possible. Lord, I love you. Amen
