Wealth Wisdom

First fruits

Proverbs 3

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.

Lord, I have been greatly remiss in this instruction. I repent. In your power I commit to do this, starting today! This month will be the month of honoring You with my wealth and the firstfruits of the harvest.

Seems to me that this is meaningless religious pap. What are the details? Does it mean you give cash to the local church for its own purposes? Select a priest to receive it for whatever he/she decides to do with it? Go burn it in the back yard while chanting that it is for “the Lord”? Who, after all, reliably represents “the Lord” and the Lord’s true purpose so that you can give your wealth and “first fruits” to him/her? How do you know what the Lord wants done with it? Better to have a tasty chocolate malt and think happy thoughts about how great it is that the Lord taught humans how to make chocolate malts.
