The first fruits

The first fruits

Our giving God

“Bring your first fruits to the house of the Lord your God”

“Bring also your tithes and offerings to the house of the Lord.”

“But Lord I don’t have enough!

I barely make it through the month with all this bills to pay

If I give, I will have less to live on!”

Consider the two brothers

Who brought their gift to God

Bring only the best

Because the Giver of all givers also weight hearts

Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil.  In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord. And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.

Genisis 4:4-5 (NIV)

 

The greatest Giver of all givers

He brought His first fruits

The “crème de la crème”

He slowly unpacked His Gift

Silence

You could hear a pin drop

It was stunning

Lovely

Wonderful

The gift was perfect

For the gift was Himself

So when you bring your first fruits

Remember that it is to the Giver of all givers

And consider carefully

 

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6
