11/29/14 Daily Devotion

Malachi 1:14 “Cursed is the cheat who has an acceptable male in his flock and vows to give it, but then sacrifices a blemished animal to the Lord. For I am a great king,” says the Lord Almighty, “and my name is to be feared among the nations.

God brought a powerful message to His people through Malachi. He said those who bring a bad offering, even though they have a good one, will be cursed. This is a powerful declaration, but does it still happen today? The answer is wrapped around what you consider to be a curse. Does God intentionally bring negativity into our lives if we bring Him defective offerings? Let’s consider the following: in today’s society, would it be considered a curse to lose the blessings of God? There would most certainly be a negative impact on our lives if, because of our lack of effort in pleasing God, God removed all blessings from our lives. God is not going to bless us if we are not choosing to live our lives correctly. He is not going to honor us if we are not honoring Him in all that we are doing. So it’s simple. If we honor God with our offerings, His blessings will continue to flow through our lives. If we choose to refuse to honor God, then He will discontinue to bless us until we have changed.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see how important it is to honor You with my offerings.
