BRING TO GOD YOUR BEST
TEXT: MARK 12: 44
â€œFor all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her livingâ€ (Mark 12: 44).
â€œThe God from whom we seek the greatest things for life and eternity has right to the greatest things of our possession and wealth,â€ says a writer. The lyrics of this song illustrate our topic: â€œGive of your best to the Master; Give of the strength of your youthâ€¦ Give Him first place in your heart; Give Him first place in your serviceâ€¦Give Him your heartâ€™s adoration, Give Him the best that you have.â€ Indeed God has right to our best. Are you ready to bring your best to God? The widow in our text, out of her penury, gave her all to God. What a challenge? Beloved, do not withhold your best from God. Although our text focuses on financial giving, God also deserves the best of your time, talent, intellect, and other possessions. You are bringing your best to God if like Mary Slessor, T. L. Osborn and a host of others who served God from their youth, you dedicate your life to Godâ€™s service today. Great will be your rewards in heaven if you do.
Challenge: Give to God the best that you have.
Prayer: Help me Lord to give my best to you.
Quote: Surrender your heart and all to God.
