Honor Jesus with your goods, always aiming, first of all, at His delight and to you will be bestowed more opportunities to be useful and good.

  • “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear Jehovah and depart from evil.” (Pv 3.7)
  • “Honor Jehovah with your substance, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; and your barns shall be filled with plenty, and your presses shall burst with new wine.” (Pv 3.9,10).

When we are blessed, the first thing we think is to sate our appetite. If remain some leftovers, we share with the neighbor that can requite us and only, after this, we think on Jesus.

No! The first thing to be done is to apprise if what we are doing is pleasing the Eternal, so that we can be sure that we aren’t working nor running in vain (Philippians 2.16; see Galatians 2.2; Luke 12.26,27). Even if our intentions looks like good, certainly the Eternal has a best solution.

See the episode of the multiplication of breads and fishes. To satiate the famine of so great multitude, the disciples only saw the hypothesis of getting two hundred denarius to buy a modicum of bread to each one (Mark 6.37; John 6.7). Now, think: even if they had sufficient money, until the bakery bakes all breads and the fishmen fish all fishes that was necessary (certainly there wasn’t so many breads and fishes ready to be bought and consumed), all people would faint of starvation.

Nonetheless, by the power of the Creator, with only five breads and two fishes, not only everybody was sated (instead of only receive a tad of bread), but each disciple gathered together one full basket with the crumbles that fallen down on the ground (Mark 6.43).

Have a provident day focusing on honoring Jesus Christ and certainly more good you will be able to sow.
