Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the First fruits of all thine increase. (Proverbs 3:9).
I have been off of work for the last three years home schooling my children and looking after my health. I am gearing up now to go back to work. Originally I was establishing a catering business but when I began it I thought I don't want to do this like other companies. My thoughts on this was I wanted to feed the hungry. I realized it wasn't so much a company I was seeking but my business was feeding my church weekly. Once a week I do this to give my first fruits to our Lord.
I realized I home school my children because they truly are my first fruits and I want them to learn godly principles of life.
My marriage was once in ruins and many many years later my husband became settled with giving our marriage over to the Lord no matter how it turned out. He blessed us and we are happily together and united with this.
I am ready to embark going back to work and I decided I want my work to be for the Lord. I am setting up a company instead of only giving ten percent of my increase and first fruit to him. I plan to only keep ten percent and give the rest away to organizations that help others. I pray this will be a blessing.
