“And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.” 1 Samuel 2 v14
The offering, the preparation of the offering, the giving of the offering, the acceptance of the offering, and the use of the offering, all is to be weighed. Not so much as the amount of which we seem driven by, but all the actions surrounding the gift as well.
Our lives are much of the offering we have in the way we live to the Lord. Not so much on the outward but on the inward spirit that guides us in Christ. In a prior verse the word comes in this manner-“…for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.”
Lord, help us to understand your ways and act in such a manner to live a good life. Forgive us where we fail and lead us away from such failings. Help us Lord to meditate in your ways (precepts) and to respect them. Let us delight our-self in you and in your word. Amen
