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

IF YOU WANT TO LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE now, you must develop a lifestyle of living to give instead of living to get. You can do this in many practical ways. If you have things lying around your house or in storage that you are never going to use again, why not give those things away to someone who could use them?

Our minds can conjure up all kinds of excuses when God begins unclasping our sticky fingers. Human nature wants to hold on to everything. But you probably have all sorts of other things that you haven't used in ages! If it's not meeting a need, turn it into a seed. Remember, we will reap what we sow.

(From Joel Osteen's Your Best Life Begins Each Morning)
