God Desires and Deserves Your Best
Deuteronomy 15:21 (KJB) And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the LORD thy God.
God’s Word is clear about the offering of a lamb to God. It was to be without blemish or imperfection. This means that a lamb for sacrifice to God was to be flawless. Any deficiency would disqualify it from being fit for offering as a sacrifice to God.
Today, we can use the same “spiritual plumb line” for measuring whether our intended offering for God is acceptable by Him or not. It is not necessary to offer a shed animal sacrifice to Him for our sin so there is no need to offer a lamb or other animal today.
Our sin debt has already been paid in full by the shed blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary.
However, God does desire we give our best to Him. God does not want a man to offer his leftovers, such as time, his surplus money, or anything that a man has in excess and readily available for giving. God desires for a man to offer that which he has little, or that which costs him something.
