We should not be hardly working, but heartily working as unto the Lord.
Give to those in need and don’t expect anything in return.
Honor the Lord and pay your taxes.
You only get ONE CHANCE to put Him first with what increase He has given you.
Be real about what you give and what you should give in honoring the Lord.
As leaders, whatever is going on in ‘your camp’ is your responsibility. Often what we do or don’t do can prevent us from defeating the enemy in battle.
As believers, ultimately through Jesus the enemy is defeated. We fight from victory and the war is won. But we can allow the enemy to have influence through disobedience to the Lord.
Not honoring the Lord first has consequences that hurt not only you but those around you. No one sins to themselves.
Grace costs us nothing, and God is still willing to allow the worst kind of people (like us) in His kingdom.
