“I thought, ‘Surely they will have reverence for me now! Surely they will listen to my warnings. Then I won’t need to strike again, destroying their homes.’ But no, they get up early to continue their evil deeds.” (Zephaniah 3:7)
I really enjoy cooking… I love the preparation, the smell of ingredients simmering and everything that comes with cooking; I even will have most of dishes washed prior to serving the meal.
Often when everyone has had their fill, any leftovers are put into one of my wifes eclectic collection of tupperware containers. Hidden in the back corners of the fridge or given to our dog. Do you realize this is often true of our lives? We spend hours each week working, spending time with family and enjoying hobbies only to throw God the leftovers.
The truth is that God has given us the time we have, the money we spend and the abilities we enjoy and because of that, we should give back to Him. In fact, we can do that by simply asking Him for opportunities to serve Him and others throughout each day. So whether you are on the job or out and about, ask God to give you an opportunity to share the Gospel. As we actively pursue ways to glorify God and reach people, we will be giving God our best and in turn will find true joy.
“God deserves our best, not just rest!”
Heavenly Father, Thank You for the life You have given me and for the many blessings I enjoy. Lord, I pray that You will help me to use them for Your Kingdom. Please open doors for me to be able to share the Gospel with those around me and to help those in need. Lord, I don’t want to simply give You leftovers. Help me give You my very best. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
If you do not personal relationship with Jesus, I encourage you not to pass up the precious gift of His love and eternal life. Jesus died on the cross for you and me. Jesus loves us and wants to help us through the storms. If you have not asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior please click here 4 Simple Steps to Jesus
