“And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the LORD thy God” (Deut. 15:21). These are the words Moses gave the Israelites before they crossed Jordan. Their sacrifices had to be the best. Seconds or leftovers would not work.
God wants the best from us as well in worship. Do we give Him the best singing we have (Eph. 5:19)? Is our giving the best we can do (2 Cor. 8:12)? What about our prayers (James 5:16)? Are they the best or just vain repetitions (Matt. 6:7)? When we observe the Lord’s Supper do we give it our best (1 Cor. 11:27-29)? Is the time we spent in studying God’s Word the best?
God gave His best, what will we give?
