Using what we have

Honour the LORD with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase; - Proverbs 3v9

There is nothing wrong with having. We all have to a certain extent. Some of us have more and some of us have less, but we all have something. They question we need to examine is ‘What do we do with what we 

Proverbs 3v9 gives us the answer. Whatever we have, be it much or little, great or small, fancy or plain, extravagant or functional, has one purpose for God’s people. We are to honour the Lord with what we have. 
We are to honour him with what we gain.

Whether we have loads of stuff, a middling amount, or just enough to get by, God is honoured if we use it for Him, He is no more honoured by the rich man who uses his wealth to honour Him than He is by the poor man who uses his little. The widow who honoured God with her two mites was praised more than those who gave out of abundance.

Praise God that He doesn’t require much to honour Him. All He requires is what we have.
