As we enter fall season, we see weather cooling down, leaves changing colors and daylight getting lesser. And most of us enjoy this weather. May be sitting outdoors and enjoying the creation of God and meditating on Him and we are filled with sense of gratitude. Yes, it’s a season of harvest and thankfulness. Harvest means to reap, gather and store. What we have, we bring it to the Lord and honor our Lord with substance since we are grateful to Him and acknowledge Him.
The Bible says
“Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce” Proverbs 3:9
So, bring your first fruits to our Lord, God and savior. Honor Him with your first best fruits that He has blessed you with. In old testament Exodus 22:29 talks about not delaying your offerings of your first fruits. In return, God will continue to bless us and take care of every need. God promises His blessings in return. He asks us to test Him and He shall open for you the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing until it overflows (Malachi 3:10). So, let’s start this season with giving to the Lord and to others around us. And glorify our Lord in heaven.
