Firstfruit Blessing

Scripture

9 Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce;  10 then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine. – Proverbs 3:9-10 ESV

Observation

When we honor God with our wealth and our first fruits then we will have plenty and it will be bursting at the seams. 

Application

It is easy to see our wealth and resources as our own for our use and pleasure. The proverbs makes it clear when we give of our first fruits and honor God with what we have earned and received then there will be an abundance.  The way of blessings comes through honoring God with our resources. It begins with a tithe of our first first fruits but continues with a daily surrender of all we have to the Lord. 

Prayer

Lord may you be honored with the way I handle my resources. May all I have be seen as a blessing from you and may you use them for your use.
