Jericho represented the “first fruits” for Israel in fighting for the promise land. It was the first city they would encounter they had to fight against. In so doing it was symbolic of giving God the first fruits of their labor. Not a hindsight or a second thought but a first and foremost offering and increase. Tithing and giving are not limited to money alone. It also includes our gifts, talents, time, family, etcetera. It is about the condition of the heart. God doesn’t need anything from us. He wants, not needs, our love, fellowship, intimacy, and us making Him, not just first in our life, but our everything. Our relationship with Him permeates every area of our life, from family to work, and to our community relationships.
