Honour the LORD with thy substance,
and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
First fruits. FIRST things first.
Why is that important?
Because many times if things aren't attended to first
They don't happen.
How do I know this?
My blog is Mornings with the Son.
and it is now 6 PM
Way past morning.
The Lord impressed on me the necessity of first fruit.
He must come first or all else is at peril.
We can not handle life without God.
He is a jealous God and desires to come first in our mind and hearts.
Not because He is lacking
But for our own protection and well-being.
We may vow to give unto God, maybe even tithe,
But unless it comes our first,
Unless we purpose to pull out of our income that first amount set aside for God
It just may not happen.
He demands our first fruits.
Our best to be given unto Him
Whether it is time, money, or talents.
Not because He is greedy or need
But because we are.
Unless God is first in our lives
We will not prosper
if we think we can do it without God
we are sunk.
God comes first - always.
