I thought, 'Surely they will have reverence for me now!
Surely they will listen to my warnings.
Then I won't need to strike again,
destroying their homes.'
But no, they get up early to continue their evil deeds.

I really enjoy cooking. I love the preparation, the smell of ingredients simmering and everything that comes with cooking; except of course the clean up. Often when I cook and when everyone has had their fill, the leftovers are bagged up and hidden in the dark corners of the fridge or tossed to the dog. Friend, do you realize this is often true of our lives? We spend hours each week working, spending time with family and enjoying hobbies only to throw God the leftovers.
The truth is that God has given us the time we have, the money we spend and the abilities we enjoy and because of that, we should give back to Him. In fact, we can do that by simply asking Him for opportunities to serve Him and others throughout each day. So whether you are on the job or at the park, ask God to give you an opportunity to share the Gospel. As we actively pursue ways to glorify God and reach people, we will be giving God our best and in turn will find true joy.
Life Lesson: God deserves our best, not the rest.
