Daily Reading Plan

Saturday 16 January 2021

You are to give them the first fruits of your corn, new wine and olive oil, and the first wool from the shearing of your sheep.

Deuteronomy 18:4

Moses makes it crystal clear where the priority lay when it came to giving. The clue is in the name: ‘FIRST fruits!’ Whatever they produced, whether for food, drink or clothing, God’s portion had to be set aside FIRST. Then what was left was theirs. It was unthinkable that it could be the other way round! The standards of the ‘me-too’ society in which we live today are not for the Christian. God’s love and care never changes and nor do his standards. So, he expects nothing less of us today. Not unreasonable when we consider that in Christ Jesus, he has given us everything!
