Bringing Junk

In this self-serving world where we are the gods of our own universe, we often try to appease the Lord by throwing Him scraps.  We will spend countless thousands on full-filling our own desires and grudgingly give here and there to His causes.  We have tricked ourselves into believing that we own what we have.

“When you present a blind animal for sacrifice, is it not wrong?  And when you present a lame or sick animal, is it not wrong?  Bring it to your governor!  Would he be pleased with you or show you favor?” Malachi 1:8-9

So….If the governor wouldn’t accept the gifts, why do we think God would?  And to think that after we bring in our junk, we asked God  to have favor on us and be gracious to us.  As my new friends from South Africa would say, “That is rubbish!”
