Thoughts on Proverbs 3
9 Honour the LORD with thy substance,
And with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty,
And thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
No matter how bad things may get, Christians are to honor God with what we do have. It may be less than we have had, but it is something. This proverb teaches that if we will do so, our barns will be filled with plenty and our presses will burst out new wine! For me today, a guy with no barn or wine press, this still has an application.
- Barns will be full…I will not go without substance.
- I will have a “barn” or at least some sort of shelter to put the substance (or just me and the family)!
My plan? I am going to “TEST GOD” with today’s Proverb and see what HE will do.
