PUTTING GOD FIRST
The nature of man is naturally self-centred;the Adamic nature is one that is inherent in any being born into the world.All earthlings are designed to Love self;They are Pleasure seekers,lovers of pleasure more than Lovers of God.I recently learnt that The whole essence of Tithing itself is to create in us a consciousness of putting God first.

We are to give the 10th of our income first before anything comes in the way.Its not because God needs your cash;He owns ALL things,rather its to let you know that he wants you to put Him first in all things.
Abraham gave tithes to Melchisedek(a representation of Christ) after the war to rescue Lot;this demonstrated his recognition of the Grace and Lordship of God.Others would have taken the spoils of war and rejoiced in great victory as Saul did but not Abraham.
Beyond your offerings to God.In decision making;choices we make.The way the day runs,YOU are to put GOD First.

I have a very close friend whom i observed for sometime,i realised that he never says anything to anyone in the early hours of the day, even when we greet him, he only responds by giving a nod.why? He reserves his firat words for God alone.He only responds after he has greeted His Heavenly Father.It only made me realise that its puttimg God first that matters.

The charge today is to realise that Our Heavenly Father would have us live a stress free ;ife, but we must consciously surrender our lives to Him.can you imagine your Father being the Richest man on earth,and yet you're trying to be the Bread winner in the same family? Its Absurd! Let Him Father you and all issues would be solved. Casting your cares upon Him for he careth for you....

Central Truth: Putting God first proves that we trust Him to help us,and that we recognise His Great Love for you.

FOCUS SCRIPTURE: 1Peter 5:7

PRAYER:
Lord,take charge while i ride in the back seat.Lead me on and i will follow after you.
