Offering Our Wealth And Firstfruits
Honor the Lord with your wealth,
with the firstfruits of all your crops;
then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
and your vats will brim over with new wine.
Solomon dares us to give our firstfruits and offerings to God,
promising that we will receive overwhelming material blessings.
Fear The Lord And Shun Evil
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
Just as Wonder Bread helps build strong bodies 12 ways,
Fearing God and avoiding evil improves your physical health.
Works wonders for your spiritual health, too;
And the health of your family.
Walking By Faith
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
The culture has perverted Faith to mean Blind Faith.
But in the Scriptures, it means Informed Trust.
Trust is built from both learning and experience.
The Scriptures assure us that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob can be trusted.
Our experiences reinforce our faith.
God’s Dynamic Duo
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
Love and Faithfulness are a dynamic pair.
Faithfulness strengthens Love.
Love strengthens Faithfulness.
While Love is not a prerequisite for marriage,
