“…Honor the Lord with your capital and sufficiency [from righteous labors] and with the firstfruits of all your income;So shall your storage places be filled with plenty, and your vats shall be overflowing with new wine…” Proverbs 3:9-10 AMP, italics and emphasis mine
Most churches teach about offerings (to God), few teach about tithes and sacrifices, very few teach about giving to the poor and the needy even though part of the tithe was meant for them (poor and the needy amongst us)…yet extremely few teach about first-fruit.
Honoring God with your first-fruit (first income, harvest, profit) is not about giving; it is about love and worship. It is acknowledging that it all belongs to God and that He is the one who gave it to you in the first place. It is about God being God of all of you including your income.
