One Way to Honor Him

  Proverbs 3: 9, "Honor God with thy substance, and with first fruits of all thine increase."

  When we realize that every good gift comes from God (James 1: 17) and we are but stewards of that which belongs to Him (Psalm 24: 1), we see the blessing that is ours to give unto the Lord. On the first day of the week (1 Cor. 16: 1,2) we are privileged to give in the way and manner He teaches us. In this way we show our love for Him ( 2 Cor. 8: 8).

  Please notice that we give of the "first fruits" and not the "leftovers." We consider "all" our increase when determining our gift. We can honor God many ways but this one is given for all to see. Do we really see it and obey it?
