In life, one of the major decisions we make is who or what takes first place. For some, it’s family, and for others it’s their job or their children. Still, for others, it’s their hobbies or sports. Bottom line: it’s OUR decision. Even though the above mentioned aren’t bad, the question remains: should they be first place in our lives? I believe the answer is a definite “no”. God and His ways should always take precedence and come first. If God is first, everything else will fall into place. If He’s not, nothing will fall into place. Again, it’s your choice.
Prioritizing God should be reflected in our finances. The first step in making that happen is to return the tithe to Him. The first portion, the tenth, of what you earn is His, and we should return it to Him. We return a tithe and give an offering. When we do, we place God in His rightful place in our lives; first. When that happens, every other area of our lives will start to straighten out. The choice is ours. Choose this day whom you will serve. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
