An Offering Acceptable Unto God

Whenever we bring God an offering, it is our prayer that He will accept it. In Matthew 5: 24,  we find that if we have anything against our brother or sister before bringing an offering to the altar, we must “leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.” Giving is a part of worship. Whatever we do should be from a heart of worship, praise and adoration. I want to focus today on an offering acceptable unto God. In Genesis 4:4, we find these words:

“Abel also brought a gift—the best portions of the firstborn lambs from his flock. The Lord accepted Abel and his gift:

This is the story of two brothers, Cain and Abel. The Word of God says that Abel brought God an offering and the Lord accepted it, however, Cain’s offering was not accepted by the Lord. In reading the story, we discover that Cain’s heart was not right at the time he presented his offering. Whenever we bring God an offering, it is important that our heart is right with God as well as with others. It is not the amount of the offering, but we should give as an act of worship. We should strive to honor God by making Him first in our lives – first over our finances, our families, and our careers. Make Him first, and give Him the offering that He deserves – with clean hearts.
