It's amazing how following this firstfruits principle cuts the chord of greed in your heart. Greed and self-sufficiency are always lurking in the shadows. Everything in your flesh wants to feel secure and satisfied with the things of this world. So, each time you give the first and the best away, you hack back the encroaching thorns of the cares of this world that desire to choke the life out of you.
How to Ambush Yourself (Proverbs 1:10-19)
