Topic: Honour

Scripture Reading: Proverbs 3:9-10, 1 Timothy 5:17-18

Main Text
Proverbs 3:9-10

'Honour the Lord with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.'

To honour the Lord is to place Him first in your life.
Whatever God sends us in the way of secular prosperity, there is a portion of it always for the support and advancement of God's worship. When that portion is thus disposed of, the rest is sanctified; when it is withheld, God's curse is upon the whole.

The reason why others can't receive from the same Man of God is just because of dishonour. It's biblical to reverence your priest who goes before the Lord on your behalf. You can't receive from what you don't honour.

Giving your substance to the Lord is an act of honour which yields much more than expected regardless of your religious persuasion. 'Unbelievers' give as an act of reverence and receive from the Lord in a good measure.

Abraham, Isaac and Jacob honoured the Lord in sacrifices and preserved generations.

Success requires giving some of your assets, and the first part of any increase, to God. Giving Him leftovers, whether large or small, is not honour, and it does not fulfill the proverb. Cain’s sacrifice, for instance, was rejected because it was not an offering of the first and best of his harvest. Unlike his brother Abel, he gave second best to the Lord (Gen. 4:3–4).

God is to be first considered in the distribution and expenditure of our means. Our general plan is to see whether we have anything left for God. 
Selah

Prayer:
Pray for understanding and commitment to honour the LORD your God in all your ways in Jesus' name. Amen

Blessings!
Shalom
