Before the Silence, #3
What do we offer to God? Read Malachi 1:11-14.
My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord Almighty. “But you profane it by saying, ‘The Lord’s table is defiled,’ and, ‘Its food is contemptible.’ And you say, ‘What a burden!’ and you sniff at it contemptuously,” says the Lord Almighty. “When you bring injured, lame or diseased animals and offer them as sacrifices, should I accept them from your hands?” says the Lord . “Cursed is the cheat who has an acceptable male in his flock and vows to give it, but then sacrifices a blemished animal to the Lord. For I am a great king,” says the Lord Almighty, “and my name is to be feared among the nations.
Malachi 1:11-14 NIV
When we think about the offerings that we bring to God, what do we bring? Do we come to God as we are and we bring him the best that we have to offer? He is worthy of everything we have and so to not bring him the best is to insult him. Will we bring God our best today?
