Deuteronomy 26:10 And now, behold, I have brought the firstfruits of the land, which thou, O LORD, hast given me. And thou shalt set it before the LORD thy God, and worship before the LORD thy God: 11 And thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the LORD thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house, thou, and the Levite, and the stranger that is among you.
God gave them the land and all that they had! They were to bring an offering to God. It was of the first fruits or the first products of what God had given them. They were to rejoice in what God was doing in and through them.
This is the problem that we have! We pray and beg God to get there but when we get there we begin to think that we got there by our hard work. So instead of giving an offering of the money that God gave us we think it is our money!
We get upset that God thinks that we owe Him anything! There is the problem. Did God do a work in our lives or not? Did God give me the money and the ability to get it or did I get it?
It is God and He gets the first of all that I get!
