HAVE YOU EVER GIVEN A GIFT THAT YOU USED A FEW TIMES AND REALIZED YOU DID NOT LIKE IT SO YOU GIFTED IT TO SOMEONE ELSE AT CHRISTMAS?
Some people might be snickering because they have done that……lol!
OTHERS GASPED AT THE THOUGHT!
OTHERS STILL HAVE BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF THAT USED GIFT.
There is one thing for sure…..that is not nice!
The principle of a gift is that we are giving someone love through a gift. The old used gift speaks of the care and love that was a second thought (not talking of antique or generational gifting).
SO MANY OF US GIVE JESUS OUR LEFTOVER, USED, RATHER THAN PACKAGING OUR BEST!
Heb. 13:15, Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
Deut 17:1, You shall not sacrifice to the LORD your God an ox or a sheep in which is a blemish, any defect whatever, for that is an abomination to the LORD your God.
GOD DESIRES OUR BEST – US – NOT OUR LEFTOVERS – BUT – US – OUR BEST!
Rom 12:1-2, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
IT IS EASY TO GIVE JESUS THE UNUSED TIME, LEFTOVER MONEY, WHAT WE HAVE REMAINING OF LOVE.
He desires our FIRSTS!
Ez 44:30, And the first of all the firstfruits of all kinds, and every offering of all kinds from all your offerings, shall belong to the priests. You shall also give to the priests the first of your dough, that a blessing may rest on your house.
WHAT ARE YOU GIVING JESUS AS YOUR GIFT TODAY?
Give Him your BEST TODAY AND SEE THE BLESSINGS FLOW!
