Malachi 1: Here God is angry with the people because they aren’t giving Him the respect that He deserves. They are only serving Him and loving Him half-heartedly.
If someone popular or in a high-powered position asked us to do something, would we be willing and eager to please them?
What about giving gifts? Would we not give our best to them?
Yet how is our hearts and attitudes when serving God? Is it a chore? Even giving of our time is done with moaning and grumbling.
We would give and do so much more for a mere human than we would for our awesome God. I think we often forget just how much he has done for us. We need a real wake-up call.
Lets show God some respect and serve Him with our all, Lets give Him our best.
