First Fruits

Today’s Verses…

Genesis 4:3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.  4And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:  5But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

In reading the verse, you may not understand the magnitude of the offerings.  Cain brought his best, most perfect fruit to the Lord for a sacrifice; Abel brought his best, most unblemished firstling.  Yet, God was pleased with Abel, but not with Cain.  They both brought their best, most perfect, but was Cain’s offering really a sacrifice?  Was any emotion attached to it, like there would be when offering a live being, a lamb?  Abel’s offering was a true sacrifice unto the Lord.  Have you given a true sacrifice unto the Lord?  Have you given God your best?

My Prayer…

Heavenly Father, thank you for all the blessings you have given us this day.  We are thankful and undeserving, but are so glad that You love us so.  Please come into our hearts and help us to give you our best, to give our neighbors, our best, and to give to the world, our best each and every day.  AMEN.
