Peace Family, does God deserve the best of us?
The immediate answer is, “Yes, of course,” but we often don’t live that way. The temptation is to think to ourselves, “Haven’t I given enough of my time, talents, and resources to God? Hasn’t he asked enough of us? Don’t I have the right to keep this little thing to myself?” That’s dangerous thinking.
Peace Family, God has given us everything. The Bible says that every good and perfect gift comes from Him. Let’s offer our best to God. Let’s offer to him the things that we hold most dear to our hearts- our careers, our marriages, our finances, our futures, our free time, and everything else that we deeply value. He is deserving of it. We can never give too much to God.
If we’ve been living with selfish ambition, let’s relinquish it over to Him. It might be scary, but something important to remember is that he is already in control, and just because we offer something to God does not mean that he wants us to be miserable or wear ourselves out. He is a good father, not a wicked father, and he will not give us a snake or a stone when we ask for bread. Sometimes he will ask us to give something up that we treasure. Sometimes though, he will give that thing back to us.
What do you cherish in your life? What can you give and dedicate to Him today? Let’s you and me both make a fresh decision to give God our best. He is absolutely worthy of it.
