What Comes First?
The principle of giving a portion is infused in the Scriptures. Honoring God with a holy portion, tithe, or sacrifice is a spiritual principle. If it is all His, why not honor Him with acknowledging His Lordship by bringing the tithe into the storehouse?
This is not a legalistic practice but a Godly discipline and acknowledgment that all we have comes from Him. It helps keep it all in perspective. We think so much about these things that a fresh perspective is probably not a bad thing.
He doesn’t need your money, but He does require your obedience. I have found that a surrendered heart moderates greed. Perhaps we need to give to receive.
Quick Prayer: I will give You the best part of all You have given me, for You are my Lord. Amen.
