“Out of all your gifts ye shall offer every heave offering of the LORD, of all the best thereof, even the hallowed part thereof out of it.”
Numbers 18:29 KJV
S. C. Kirk wrote one of my favorite hymns “Our Best”. “Hear ye the Master’s call, “Give Me thy best!” For, be it great or small, that is His test. Do then the best you can, not for reward, Not for the praise of men, but for the Lord.” Are we giving Jesus our best or are we giving Him what’s left over at the end of the day?
Someone said “I don’t have the time to have devotions in the morning and when I come home from work, I am too tired to do anything but relax and watch television”. If we can watch television, then we can spend time with Jesus. How we must hurt Him and break His heart when we put things before Him.
If we are too busy to spend time with Jesus, we are too busy and we need to rearrange our schedules. May God help us to put Jesus first in our heart, in our time, in our life and in everything we do. If ever someone deserves to have first place, it is Jesus, the “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS”.
