Malachi 1:13-14 KJV
…ye brought that which was torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the Lord .
 But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the Lord of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen.
Today we begin to look at the book of Malachi, the very last of the old testament prophets whose voice I learnt lasted for over 400years of biblical silence.
The post-exile Jews had become lukewarm by now and didn’t really value the rewards of serving God. They gave what wasn’t their best, what wasn’t wanted or needed, sick and lame animals as their offerings, God would have none of that.
Malachi argued that if they wouldn’t present such to their governors, why would they do so to God?
Obviously God had no place in their hearts, offering was just a tradition passed on.
The quality of your offering is as important as the act itself. It’s measure reflects how you hold whom you are offering it to in your heart. Away with what monies you don’t want, He doesn’t want it either.
Consider the quality of your offering today.
Have a blessed day.
