Is It Biblical Or Right To Give Your First Earnings To Your Parents? by Tookool(m): 9:19am On Aug 23, 2020
My client whose construction project I am handling called early this morning to advice me. She's not just a client client though, we are relatives but distant. She asked if I have ever given my parents my salary/wages to bless, my response was no ... though I have given them gift from my previous earnings but the gifts were just from about 30% of my earnings.
She advised that I take this month's earning for it to be blessed and then my parents can choose to take all of it after the blessing or return it to me after the blessing. N/B I earn above 200k monthly. I had budgeted this money for something important but it isn't that important to my parents but they might still take it, you know no sane person rejects a legitimate money gift when offered
Now my question is

Should I give them some to bless or all

Is it really important for our parents to bless our salary/wages?

Are there consequences for not giving our parents our first salary/earnings

Are there blessings attached to giving our parents our first earnings

Your contributions are needed please

First and foremost, learn to show godliness, kindness, generosity, and care to your own parents, for this is pleasing in the sight of God.

If that is what it will cost you then go ahead and do it parental blessings can outlive you. Abraham blessed Isaac his son and Isaac blessed Jacob and Jacob blessed Joseph and the rest....
Honour your parents so that your days can be long on earth....

I'll rather give all my money to my parents than to a religious charlatan who will only tell me to "go and pray" when I need help.
