Proverbs 3:9 ‘Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops;’
“I will give when I can……If this happens then I will give…..I need first to do this then I will give…..I have a long list of what I want first….” Rationalizing away the calling of God is often what we do as humans. Love is a doing word, giving in love must never be out of selfish reluctance, but rather joyfully, unconditionally and without counting the cost. You may say or reason, “But I want to be wise with money and my time in what I do.” But what about being wise to the call of God? Does God’s portion only come after you are satisfied? Or does his portion come from the first fruits of all your crops? We are reminded Isaiah 55:8 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD.’ Bless you.
