7Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.8This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.9Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;10then your barns will be filled to overflowing,and your vats will brim over with new wine.

3: 9-10   This refers to the practice of giving for God’s use the first and best portion of the harvest (Deuteronomy 26: 9-11). Many people give God their leftovers. If they can afford to donate anything after the bills are paid and their wants are met, they do so. These people may be sincere and contribute willingly, but their attitude is nonetheless backward. To give God the first part of our income demonstrates that he has first place in our lives and that our resources belong to him. We are only managers of God’s resources. Giving to God first helps us conquer greed, prioritizes our role in contributing to God’s Kingdom work in the world, and opens us up to receive the special blessings he promises to those who put him and his purposes above all else.

Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure that you keep GOD in his rightfull place,and be sure that you give your firstfruits to him and he will make sure all other needs are met.When we do this we are demonstrating our faith in him doing what we think might be impossible! by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
