Honor the Provider
“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops” Proverbs 3:9 (NIV)
We choose to honor the Lord or to disrespect the Lord by how we receive and use what He provides. All wealth, gain, talent, abilities, and skills are from the Lord God and by returning a portion to Him through a dedicated Kingdom use, we acknowledge Him as our Provider. We receive what He gives in thanksgiving and express our gratitude in order to give glory to Him.
Everything we have is because of God’s mercy and our attitude toward Him should reflect that in our appreciation for what we have. Every relationship, the shelter above our heads, the food on the family table, and the work of our hands is by God’s mercy.
Let’s pray today that we may give glory to our Lord by returning a portion of what comes from Him to His work.
