TOPIC:  Give Firstfruits And Tithes

Read: Deuteronomy 26(NKJV)

When the children of Israel possessed the land God had given them, He commanded them to obey His statutes and judgments concerning giving of their first-fruits and tithes. The first-fruit was the first of all the produce of the land. They were also to give their tithes (the first tenth of their income, produce or profit) to the priest and the needy. Their total obedience would make them the holy people of God.

The significance of giving your first-fruit and tithe to God is that you put God first before others. Christians are to seek first God’s kingdom and His righteousness (Matt. 6:33). It also signifies that you love and obey God. Some Christians can go for a whole year without paying their first-fruits. This is wrong. Some do not pay their tithes in full. This is also wrong. If you are one of such people, please repent today and obey God.

Decide today to give God your first-fruits and tithes for they belong to Him. Such obedience will open to you doors of blessings as God’s child. May God touch you to comply from this day forward.

 PRAYER: Help me gracious Lord to give you my life and my all in Jesus’ name. Amen.
