Your Best Offering

Genesis 4:4
4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering.

Unlike Cain, Abel gave the best of the firstborn lambs of his flock. We are not told to what extent Abel understood the significance of his act of worship or how much it would please God. How could he fully know that Jesus would eventually become the lamb that was slain before the foundations of time or that Jesus would be the first among many brethren? Abel simply had a willing heart. He was willing to fearlessly follow the promptings of his heart and give God his best. When we give God our best, he will respect our offering also. What is it that God has place on your heart to do to expand his kingdom? Is it to be more loving towards your neighbor? Is it to give him the first part of your day? Is it to witness to someone about his goodness? Giving such an offering does not have to be difficult. Jesus instructed his disciples that he simply does what he sees his father doing. Abel then through his offering simply did what God did-gave the best unblemished lamb of his flock. Imitation is truly the sincerest form of flattery. When we spend time in Godís presence reading his word and praying to him, we are also given the opportunity to learn who he is and how he gets things done. Then, God gives us the opportunity to give our best because he has already given his Son, which was his best.

Thought of the day: What is the best offering I can give to God today that he will respect?



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
