For I desire mercy, not sacrifice,
and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.
Going to church every Sunday and giving our tithes and offering, do you think these is enough? Many Christians, you might observed, are physically present but mentally absent during church services. Offering our tithes is a responsibility that we must participate but it should not be enough for us. We should give only the best for our God.
God sees the heart. No matter how we try to hide our motives and wicked actions, He can see them all. If our only aim of going or attending services is for other people to see us, then we are just fooling ourselves. God wants us to be real for He is the truth. He didn’t even made giving tithes and offering compulsory. We can give what our hearts wants to give for He doesn’t look at the amount. Again, He looks at the heart. So if you are giving a big sum to please other individuals and to be recognize, better change your thinking.
Do not be a part time Christian. Walk in Spirit even if it is not Sunday. Live like Christ did when He became a man. Always read the Bible and meditate on it day and night. Be wise enough in knowing God’s desires. He is not a kid who will be glad enough to receive a toy in exchange of his parent’s lack of time and care. He does not prefer our monetary sacrifices in lieu of living righteously with him as the center. Spend every day involving God in all your doings. Be a full time Christian. Be a Christian in your heart and soul 24/7 not just during Sundays.
