"In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success." - Proverbs 3:6
When I was in middle school, we were required to put our life motto/verse in the yearbook. And I wrote down, “In everything you do, put God first.” as mine. I grew up in a Christian school where we have our Christian Education classes. And on Wednesdays, we go to our school chapel (we even have a white uniform that we would specifically wear for that day).
I remember how I would give my tithes and offering like it was no big deal. Because then, I was so caught up with the idea that I should put God first. But when I grew older (and became more exposed to the world), I kind of struggled with giving because I felt like my allowance was not enough to buy everything I want and need. Then, I came to a point where I barely got by with my money so I decided to start tithing again, I started putting Him first in every aspect of my life including my finances. And you know what, God was faithful in providing for my needs that I barely struggled financially. He has blessed me beyond I could ever imagine. So, I encourage you to trust Him with what you have and see how amazing He truly is.
