It’s that time of the month where I pay all the bills. I spent a good part of the day with my accounts payable hat on. I couldn’t put that hat on until I had finished my duties as accounts receivable. No money received, no money to pay bills. So the first thing I have to do is to gather the payments and go to the bank and make a deposit. Then pay my bills. I don’t write out any checks until I write out my tithe, I pay God first! He has been too good to me to make Him wait until all my bills are paid, heck I don’t even wait until all the payments are collected before I pay Him! It should be like that with everything in your life. I pay Him with the first part of my day too. My mind is like a sponge first thing in the morning and I can offer Him praise for letting me wake up. God deserves our first and the best of everything we have. It’s the least we can do. Everything we have belongs to Him and all He wants from us is a small sacrifice as appreciation for all He does for us. Make Him your first priority, if for no other reason than the fact the He deserves it!
Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine. Proverbs 3:9-10
