Honor in deed

Proverbs 3:9-10
"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."

In these proverbs we are reminded that honoring God is something we do outwardly, not just a heart matter. Honor begins in the heart, of course, but becomes visible in what you say and do. We must honor God with our income, giving Him the firstfruits of it. Our sinful hearts want to keep all our stuff to ourselves, just like we want to accumulate honor and glory for ourselves. But our heavenly Father has shown us a different way. He is a generous giver, not even avoiding the deep shame of public crucifixion to give us pardon for our sins. So get back to what you were made for: honoring God, instead of self.
