FIRSTFRUITS

Read: Proverbs 3

Key Verse: “Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops.” - Proverbs 3:9

How do you decide what to give to the Lord with your offering? A tithe means a tenth of your paycheck. How does that make you feel? Why? Giving always tests the condition of our hearts. Firstfruits include the concept of giving to the Lord off the top. Instead of spending your money and giving leftovers, make your first check your gift to the Lord.

Do you believe your money is a gift from God and belongs to Him? Do you believe that it is more blessed to give than to receive? Do you believe there are eternal rewards for earthly generosity? What has shaped your views of money and giving to God? Honoring the Lord includes your bank account. How you spend your money reveals your true priorities and your faith. Being stingy is overrated: who says hoarding is excellent and fulfilling?
