Malachi 1:8,13 KJV
And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the Lord of hosts.
 Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it ! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the Lord of hosts; and 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.
I have always struggled when it comes to getting a gift for a “big” man.
I know very well that is must be something that befits his status, whether he is a humble man or not.
Usually in such scenarios I’d consult another person, most often a lady, I tend to believe they have good taste and an eye for these things 😊.
The prophet Malachi, had to call his people, post-exile people, to order!
The quality of their offering to God had gone from bad to worse, signifying how much they regarded God at the time. The defective animals would not even be given to their governor, how much more the King of Kings.
Lukewarness is seen in many areas of ones spiritual life, not just in the visible externals, but also what we give to Him in secret.
Go all out and do your best for Him. Honour Him with quality!
Have a blessed day.
