Proverb 3: 9 – 10

Honor the Lord from your wealth, and from the first of all your produce; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.

It is the blessing of the Lord that makes us rich, that prospers us and meets our needs, not the work of our hand nor our wisdom. God blesses the work of our hands and is he more than willing to give us his wisdom. We then follow his wisdom and the thoughts and plans that he gives us and we prosper. What is our part then? We are to honor him with the fruit of the success he has given us. We are so blessed of God to live in this country and to have the opportunities that we have. We are to take our opportunities and bless God with them. Bless his kids. The first 10% of our increase or our income is to be set aside for God. That is the tithe. Out of the 100% he has given us, we are supposed to give him 10%. That seems like a pretty reasonable ratio. But don’t let your giving stop there. Re-read the passage for today and you will see that the gifts that you sow are what God is using to get more to you. He uses your seeds to bring you a whole other crop so that your barns will overflow. Don’t be stingy with God. Bless him so that he can continue to bless you, so that he can increase your overflow. Honor him with your wealth so that he can create in you super abundant overflow.
