(Leviticus 1:3) “If the offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the Lord.”
As the Lord spoke to Moses he told him to tell the children of Israel to offer a male animal sacrifice without blemish. Thus, he was telling Moses when they bring me an offering it must be their best. Don’t bring an offering that’s weak and sickly; don’t bring me an offering that you would only give to your enemy; don’t bring me the leftovers; I will only receive the best of what you have.
Thus, saints the lesson learned here is even though we don’t have to offer animal sacrifices (thank God), as Christians we are expected to bring God our best offering. In whatever God has called us to do we must do it to the best of our ability and leave the rest to God. Too often, we give our best to everything else, such as our jobs, our favorite sporting activities, or whatever it is we gain pleasure from.
However, when it comes to the things of God we often bring him the leftovers; we bring him a tired praise, a complaining spirit, and we drag ourselves to church instead of showing up with pep in our step. Child of God the Lord wants our best, so if you sing-sing with all your might, if you usher—usher with all your might, if you clean the sanctuary-clean it with all your might. Whatever your hands are doing for the Lord bring your best. Because if it’s not your best, and you know whether it is, then it probably won’t be acceptable to God.
God Bless You
