At first glance, this passage may appear like a get-rich-quick formula. “If you do this, you will be prosperous.” But this passage is about what we give to God, not just what He will give us in return. We are to honor Him from the heart because He is worthy of that honor. The original word used for “honor” here is an action word that means “to make something weighty or heavy.” Therefore, when we honor God with our wealth, we are acknowledging who He is and giving Him the proper weight or respect due Him. Today, we will look at three truths about honoring God with our finances.
• Ask God to show you how you can honor Him through your giving. How can you meditate on the faithfulness and generosity of God this week?
• Meditate on Proverbs 3:5. Ask God to show you how this passage applies to your financial situation. Write down what the Holy Spirit will reveal to you.
• Do you know someone who is having a hard time trusting God, especially in the area of finances? Ask God for wisdom and the words to say to challenge the person to trust Him.
