Proverbs 3:9, “Honor the Lord with your wealth…”
When someone gives you a gift, they are honoring you. The same is true with God. When we give to him, we are honoring him. When we make ourselves and our resources available to him, we are showing our loyalty and devotion to him. But, true honor means we can’t pick and choose what we want to make available and what we want to keep to ourselves – not if we want to experience the most out of life. From our time to our talents to our treasure, everything we have is given to us by God. Because of that, we should make it all available to God and honor him with everything.
God commands us to return to him that which is already his. It starts with the tithe (the first 10%), but then it segues into greater generosity as we give above and beyond. And, when we are obedient to God, it’s not just about honoring him, but also about partnering with him. We are given the opportunity to be a part of the life-change God is bringing about in the local church!
Have you made your resources available to God? This one decision can change the course of your life – and the course of someone else’s life – as you fully devote yourself to him!

Thank you, God, for what you have provided for me financially. Help me to remain faithful to you by making those resources available to you in the local church. Amen.
