First Fruits: (Proverbs 3:9-10) – The principle of First Fruits tells us that all our firsts belong to God.  In January, the first month, we are admonished to honor Him with the first of our wages in the amount of a day, week, or a month of salary.  Let us all be faithful in this principle so God can open up blessings, abundance, miracles and power for the duration of our year. (For complete information on First Fruits, go to the Media tab and view or download the First Fruits document)
