Money, Money, Money

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.  — Proverbs 3:9-10

What we do with our money says something. It eloquently speaks to what we value or honor. If we delight in serving others we will give generously; if we treasure pleasure we’ll exhaust our bank account in the quest for experiences that light up our senses; if we love contentment and security we will spend every extra cent pursuing the right gizmo.

Where does your money go? What does it say about your treasure? The Widow’s Mite story reminds us that it isn’t so much what we give but what we keep that pleases the Lord (Luke 21:1-4). Also, keeping in mind the point of the proverb, as we honor the Lord with our wealth he will see to it that we have plenty. Keep the Lord the lord with our wealth and the other stuff is thrown in.
