Proverbs, 3:9-10
2 ב
כַּבֵּד אֶת-יְהוָה, מֵהוֹנֶךָ; וּמֵרֵאשִׁית, כָּל-תְּבוּאָתֶךָ. י וְיִמָּלְאוּ אֲסָמֶיךָ שָׂבָע; וְתִירוֹשׁ, יְקָבֶיךָ יִפְרֹצוּ
Honor God with your wealth, with the best of all your income. And your barns will be filled with grain, your vats will burst with new wine.

Suggested Discussion Questions:

What might “honoring God with our wealth” mean, especially in the context of the text that says that people will judge our characters based, at least in part, in how we spend money?

What role does self-interest play in the Proverbs text? What role does, or should, self-interest play in trying to consume ethically?
