Meaningful Giving

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: 2 Samuel 24:18-25, Proverbs 3:9-10

David's interaction with Araunah, and specifically his insistence about purchasing the threshing floor that would be used for an altar, functions as a good reminder about the importance of what we offer up to God. God wants us to give our firstfruits to Him--in other words, He wants us to offer up our best (something we value) to Him. David understood this well. He knew that building an altar to God on property that cost him nothing and then sacrificing oxen that were given to him, wasn't a sacrifice on his part at all and wouldn't honor or please God.

"Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine" (Proverbs 3:9-10).

What's your practice or habit when it comes to giving back to God? Would you say you're a firstfruits giver? If not, what's holding you back? How have you experienced what's described in Proverbs 3:9-10 above? Tami

I had to let go of the love of my life and my best friend. Always will cherish and thank God for the 39 years I had with my beautiful daughter. I raised her to be a loving caring person..She left me precious grandsons..She taught me so patience and kindness..I,too,now will spread her seeds and look forward to that glorious day when I will see her again.

Tami, a beautiful lesson on two generous givers!

In our family we try to make it a practice to give back to God our firstfruits always and willing and do give more at times.
We have experienced that you can NEVER out-giving the Lord!
To answer your question about Prov. 3 Yes!! More than we deserve!
