“Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then He will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine.” Prov 3:9-10
I went to a morning men’s gathering last week and the speaker talked about wealth. He said if we had a hot shower that day then we were considered wealthy, since most people in the world don’t even have that luxury. So how do I honor You with wealth? Obviously, by giving it away to further the work of your Kingdom I am honoring you. I’ve got to figure that expenses are tied up in the verse as well. How are Anna & I spending the wealth that you provide?
Jesus talks so much about money. He basically says that we will either worship God or money. Neil Atkinson said it well in his book, The Shrewd Christian.
“What is the major obstacle to living the life we want and developing relationships with others? Money. What is the minor obstacle? Money. That is why Jesus talked about it so much. Without the correct use of money, our discipleship, marriages, families, and lives will be impaired. We will end up living okay, and finishing mediocre.”
Prayer: Daddy, help me to honor you today with money. Both with how we give it away and how Anna & I spend it. We want to live life to the fullest, and we know that using our wealth properly is a big component of that. Lead us Lord. Amen
