This is the season of harvest across the Myanmar. Many churches celebrate thanksgiving event for God’s blessings of harvest by bringing their first fruits to His presence. The people do this to acknowledge that God is the provider of harvest and honor Him with the sacrifice of thanksgiving. Bringing the first fruits signifies the biblical command of giving the first and the best to the Lord. Let us remember to honor and give thanks to God for His blessings and reap His promise of further provisions and success.
Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of your crops;
Then your barns will be filled to the overflowing,
And your vats will brim over with new wine. Proverbs 3:9-10 (NIV)
