Malachi 1:9–“Now plead with God to be gracious to us. With such offerings from your hands, will he accept you?”–says the Lord Almighty.
What offerings and sacrifices are we bringing to God? Here, the people had gotten used to slacking on their offerings and only bring to the Lord the leftovers of what they had. God is Holy and righteous and He is worthy of our very best. Are we bring God the very best each day? If not, we need to plead with God to forgive us and to cleanse us and to make it right. After all, if we are bringing to God imply our leftovers, He is not interested in those and will reject our offering to Him. We must bring Him our very best.
Father, I know that You are worthy of the very best that I have. I will pray that You will show me where I have failed You so that I may repent and offer up a new sacrifice to You of all that I am. Forgive me and cleanse me afresh.
