This week we continue in the tropical fruity world that is ‘first fruits’ as we seek to look at what it means to be good stewards of the resources that God has given to us.
Today we look specifically at what it means to put other things in front of God’s agenda, and I wonder how often you, instead of giving God your ‘first fruits’ instead give God your ‘second’ or ‘third fruits’?
He calls for our first and our best, and wants us to put Him at the very top of our priority list, and our giving is one way that he can see where we put God in the list of our priorities.
This past few days I have also been honoured to host my friend Mr. Luke Andrew, the church administrator from our partner church in Myanmar who is in Australia as part of a scholarship program through Australian Lutheran College. We are blessed to see Him show what it means to put God first as they share the message of Christ to the many in their country who do not yet know Him.
