Giving God the First and the Best

Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops. ~Proverbs 3:9

One of my 12 big decisions for 2011 is to deepen and live out my FAITH. Meditating upon God’s Word is my priority. I am committed to do this not only on Sundays but everyday. I believe God’s Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.As I daily ponder on the scriptures, I recognize that everything I do matters to Him- even my blogging. I realized that I could only burn with passion and burst with power in His Holy Presence.

This beautiful Sunday, let us seek to honor God. Let us seek Him first and give Him the best, not what is left of us. Let us cultivate our faith and let His Words speak afresh to us this day and everyday of our lives. I invite you to ponder with me the following verses and hold on to God’s promises.

Proverbs 3:9 (The Message)

5-12 Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline;
don’t sulk under his loving correction.
It’s the child he loves that God corrects;
a father’s delight is behind all this.
