the offering

I think this picture could be titled ‘The Offering‘. It says so much, doesn’t it?

There are many ways to make an offering and some make them to nature. I think this what this picture depicts.

But, our God is a jealous God and desires all our offerings be to Him to bring Him alone glory and honor.

How can we make an offering to Him?

What does it mean to make an offering?

I think an offering implies a sacrifice. it should cost us something. Perhaps, our talent, time, and/or energy is offered up as a sacrifice to our Lord.

Our offerings might be living out this verse by doing good to others and sharing.

“…do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” Hebrews‬ ‭13:16‬ ‭NIV‬‬

And just as the word offering implies, something is offered as a gift usually in devotion or worship. It could be your time, talent, money, other resources, thanks, etc.

What are you making your offering to God be?

It should be a daily discipline in prayer, with worship, in serving, and in studying the Word. A moment by moment, hour by hour, day by day offering of your devoted life in service to our Lord.

What else can you think of that would be a worthy offering worthy of our King?

I think simply offering the honor and glory back to God in all we do is the offering worthy of His attention.

When we do, we will be a living, breathing sacrifice and others will see us…
