More to do good with

My latest Bible memory verse for our church memory program was Proverbs 3:9,10

Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

I found this excerpt from Matthew Henry's Commentary of the Whole Bible about these verses:

"... A promise, which makes it our interest to serve God with our estates. It is the way to make a little much, and much more; it is the surest and safest method of thriving: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty. He does not say thy bags, but thy barns, not thy wardrobe replenished, but thy presses: "God shall bless thee with an increase of that which is for use, not for show or ornament—for spending and laying out, not for hoarding and laying up.’’ Those that do good with what they have shall have more to do more good with."

That is good stuff.

Now the question is, am I doing good with my stuff?

We memorized this verse(es) too and it was fun to explain the meaning to the kids in different ways.

It is a very challenging set of verses!

BTW, Katie looks so cute with her banana!
