MORE PLEASING THAN SACRIFICE

🔊 Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1191

Prov 21:3 (NLT)
The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices.


Gideon was one of the many lawyers newly recruited in the renowned law firm. This firm became popular because they won very difficult cases. After working with this firm for about a month, Gideon discovered that the firm had won those difficult cases because they gave bribe. Gideon went to Paul, who was a church Elder and asked him for his opinion about bribery. “How is that your concern? All I do is pay my tithe regularly, give good offerings, give to the needy and even sponsor big projects in church” This was Paul’s response. After struggling with his conscience for a while, Gideon resorted to consoling himself that he can now help many people and give fat offerings in church.

The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just, than when we offer Him sacrifices. When King Saul disobeyed God’s commandment and offered God animals for sacrifice instead, God rejected him and his sacrifice (see 1 Samuel 15:22).

Many Christians today are committed to tithing, giving offerings, attending church meetings and doing other good deeds but have neglected righteousness and justice. They have chased money so much that they can no longer heed the truth. This is the reason why many do not have power with God.

Go into today knowing that God’s standard of righteousness and justice has not changed. It is only when this has been met that your sacrifices, gifts and good works become acceptable.
Pray for the grace to please God in all things.
