Praise and Thanksgiving Scripture Challenge

Proverbs 3:9-10
9) Honor the Lord with your wealth,
with the firstfruits of all your crops,
10) then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
and your vats will brim over with new wine.

Write down the verses in your journal. Add art, if you so desire.

Digging deeper

Other translations
Honour the Lord with thy substance,
and with the firstfruits of all thine increase;
So shall thy barns be filled with plenty,
and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

Honor God with everything you own,
give Him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.

Honor - high respect - glory - recognition

Wealth - abundance - treasure - prosperousness

Overflowing - spare - inundation - ample

Nelson's Bible Commentary
The command to honor God with wealth and to give to Him from the firstfruits of all income is a part of what it means to worship God. Fullness of barns and vats was a blessing. It is not a formula to get rich. They speak of what righteous people can reasonably expect in life, not what God promises in return on investments.

Today I used acrylics to paint the background and then used a tree from magazine clippings and a barn image from Pinterest. I used the wavy line technique to write the verse title.
