“You are not to bring anything with a defect, because it will not be accepted from you.”
Leviticus 22:20 CJB
In other words, what the LORD is saying here is don’t bring Me your leftovers or your second best! Do we give God what we “don’t want, that has no real value to us, or do we give Him our best”? Something to think about!
“Honor Adonai with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your income. Then your granaries will be filled and your vats overflow with new wine.”
Proverbs 3:9-10 CJB
Everything we have is from the LORD, so why would we give Him our leftovers? He gave Himself, His best so we could have life and life everlasting! So we should give all to Him!
“Every good act of giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father who made the heavenly lights; with Him there is neither variation nor darkness caused by turning.”
James 1:17 CJB
Today, let’s not bring defective things or our leftovers, to the LORD! Instead, let’s bring praise and thanksgiving for all the great things He has given us, even thanking Him for the difficult situations we may be going through. Why? Because He has given us a future filled with hope! Have a blessed day giving our best to the LORD!
