This is only an example, do you want a shop full of cars and tools and parts that are great quality? Then honor the LORD. You could take the next section of verses to mean that but that is not what they are talking about. Of course many would like to have the tools and parts and not have to worry about having them when needed. Proverbs 3:9-10 9 Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; 10 then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.
Careful of that last line too because that can be taken out of context and make us think we are to store up alcohol. Our plenty and our store house should be filled with the LORD and His Word. If we are storing up things it better be things that are good in God’s eyes. We should be ready and willing to give up the things/money when God calls on them. It would be a sad thing to have full barns, garages of cars and parts and not to have a life full of the LORD. The guys of the Mid AM lived this out at Milwaukee when Scott Dunning lost a motor and the Gutknecht’s and others stepped up with a motor and the hands to get it replaced and on the Mile. It was one of the great examples that come out of the MASCS. Stop and think about this. If those things happen in the race community and in the world then how are we doing as part of the Church. Do you need to get anything out of the way so you can make more room for God?
