9 ” Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase;
10 So your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.”
Today’s Inspiration: 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. Honour 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.” Proverbs 3:7-10.
Humility and Honour bring health and wealth respectively into one’s family life. Therefore honouring the father and mother is the only commandment that comes a promised of God for a long and quality life. Exodus 20:12.
Jesus taught us to carry the Cross for without it we will not have Humility and to deny ourselves is to put others needs first for without it we will not have Honour. Matthew 16:24. Live a life not building riches but building people. Whatever your eyes could see is only temporal but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 When we serve mammon, we cannot serve God but when we serve God, He shall provide exceedingly and abundantly above all we could ever asked or imagined. Ephesians 3:20. Praise God!
Prayer: O Lord My God, lead me to the cost of discipleship with humility and honour. Above all, let thy love and faithfulness never leave me, bind them around my neck and write them in the tablets of your heart. Then I will win favour in the sight of God and man, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
