Don't Give God Your Leftovers

Don't Give God Your Leftovers - Proverbs 3:9
Are you still eating Thanksgiving left-overs? Thanksgiving is one time we enjoy leftovers. 

My husband anticipates after-Thanksgiving cold turkey dipped in mayonnaise, and I look forward to repeated servings of cornbread stuffing.

Normally, however, leftovers aren’t a great thing. They’re the food that sits in the frig until it loses flavor or grows moldy…the used clothes the older sister passes down to the younger sister…the unwanted items on the sale rack.

But the worst leftovers are those we give God. Leftover time and money…half-hearted praise…weak commitment…last minute effort.

"Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce...But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Proverbs 3:9; Matthew 6:33

Perhaps you are still enjoying last week's Thanksgiving leftovers. Let them remind you not to give any to God!
