Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.
In Proverbs 3, Solomon imparts wisdom to his son about the importance of honoring God with his wealth. The instruction to give the firstfruits, the initial and best part, reflects a commitment to God’s priority in our lives. The promise of abundance illustrates God’s faithfulness in response to this obedience.
It’s important that we also consider how we honor God with our resources. The call to give the firstfruits extends beyond material possessions—it encompasses our time, talents, and treasures. By prioritizing God in our lives, we acknowledge His lordship and trust in His provision.
Today, we an opportunity to cultivate a spirit of generosity and gratitude. As we honor God with the first and best of our resources, whether it be our finances, time, or skills, we position ourselves to receive His abundant blessings. May our acts of devotion be a testament to our trust in God’s provision and faithfulness.
Lord, I commit this day to You. I recognize Your sovereignty in every aspect of my life. Help me to honor You with the firstfruits of my possessions, time, and talents. Bless me abundantly as I seek to prioritize You in all that I do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
