Malachi 1

Read Malachi 1.

When you offer blind animals in sacrifice, is that not evil? And when you offer those that are lame or sick, is that not evil? Present that to your governor; will he accept you or show you favor? says the Lord of hosts.

Malachi 1:8, ESV

In Malachi 1, we see God calling out the priests of Israel for their shortcomings. They have not honored Him with the quality of their sacrifices, and they have disgraced God and His altar.

Are you giving God your best?

Sometimes we are guilty of giving the Lord our worst hours. We spend time with Him once we’ve checked everything else off the list. Sometimes we give him the least of our earnings, that last couple of dollars once the bills have been paid. There are times when a few moments at the end of the day or a few pennies at the end of the week are genuinely all that we can give, but there are other times when we find ourselves holding back. God gives us our everything, so let us strive to give our best back to Him.
