In our homeschool co-op this year I am teaching through the book of Proverbs… Next week we will be digging into Proverbs 3:9-10.
Honor the Lord from your wealth
And from the first of all your produce;
So your barns will be filled with plenty
And your vats will overflow with new wine.
As I sat here praying over this lesson and pondering these verses I realized that to grasp the full impact of these two verses of Scripture we have to first look to the verses preceding them. The verses that command us to trust in the Lord, to not lean on our own understanding, and to not be wise in our own eyes- and are directly followed by, it will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones.
How many of us today are physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually sick due to the stress and worry of money concerns? Are you one of them? Do you constantly worry about financial issues?
In this message I share a little of my family’s testimony and the journey of faith that the Lord took us through… I can recall many times in this journey when I looked at the checkbook and did the calculating and just new that if we tithed we would not be able to make the house payment or electric bill, etc. I recall many times telling God, okay, I am going to trust You to pull through for us… and I am going to write this tithe check. Let me assure you… God has always pulled through.
Granted we said no to lots of other things in order to say yes to Him, but our bills were somehow always paid and our family always had food and we got along just fine on whatever God supplied. He is good.
Maybe this message will encourage you… and inspire you to look at your income and outcome in a different way.
Here’s the message I shared with our co-op on these verse: A Message from Proverbs 3:9-10
Here is most of the lesson shared at the Summer Breeze Ladies Retreat at McKendree Methodist
Here is a link to the audio of the message that I shared on August 14th at Journey Church in Eva, AL
An Excellent Woman
Here is just a few of the lessons from the Spiritual Gifts Precept Study. I began doing these lessons in the small group setting and chose to stop recording so that those in the class would be able to freely share their hearts during the class without being recorded.
