"Bring the choice first produce of the year to the house of your God." Exodus 22:19a (TM)
One of the themes consistent throughout scripture is that our giving is to be from the best we have, right off the top. The principle serves as a word picture to help us remember several very important truths. First, God is worth the very best that we have. In fact, He’s worth all that we have and more. Second, everything we have belongs to God anyway, so first give Him back what He’s graciously given you. Third, we need to be content with what we have left and to live within our means. Giving of the choice first produce also reminds us that it is not about us.
