Exodus 34:26 – “Bring the best of the first-fruits of your soil to the house of the Lord your God.” (NIV 1978)
My Musing – Too many times God gets the leftovers. Rarely does He get best of the first. We make sure our needs are met then we give from what is left, if we give anything at all.
My Advice – There will be times that it seems you do not have enough to give God and still meet your needs. This may be time, money or something else. These will be the times that test your faith the most. Give to God your best and first anyway. He’ll take care of making sure your needs are met. You will find that there is time and money left for the really important things after all.
