Re:Verse passage – Proverbs 3:9-10 (six)

“Honor the Lord from your wealth And from the first of all your produce;”

How do we honor the Lord with our wealth when he does not need it? We honor the Lord when we enjoy what he has given us and reinvest it into the Kingdom.

God doesn’t give to us so we can hoard; he intends for us to enjoy what he has given. A father is not honored when the son does not enjoy the gifts he has been given. Nor does He give so we can keep it to ourselves; he expects us to be generous as he is generous.

And enjoying what God has given and generosity is not mutually exclusive; after all, it is more blessed to give than to receive.
