When we think of sacrifice, we think of giving money (if money is the first thing that comes to our minds, it tells us what is most important to us), working in a soup kitchen or getting up early to take a neighbor to the doctor. Sacrifice, "the offering of something precious, which increases a relationship and increases favor". What about those "private thoughts" when someone offends us; what about those things that really need done before we pray or read the Bible; or what about a kind word in response to harsh words? Hebrews 13:15, "...let us offer the sacrifice of praise to GOD continually, ... giving thanks to HIS name." We are all sinners, and we become "deceived" as to what our Sacrifice should be. So, GIVE THANKS WITH A GRATEFUL HEART, FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR US! When we give all of "those hidden sinful treasures" to GOD, HE is Glorified and we GIVE THANKS WITH A GRATEFUL HEART! AMEN.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
