“When anyone brings a grain offering to the Lord, their offering is to be of the finest flour.” -Leviticus 2:1
One interesting insight from the system of offerings in Leviticus is the focus on giving God our best. In chapter two, the emphasis is on the grain offering. God’s people were to bring the finest flour, prepared to the best of their abilities.
Giving our best to God is an act of worship.
Excellence is a value and a priority when it comes to our worship of God. People often claim to have “no time” to pray, read Scripture, or worship, yet the same people often spend hours each week on computer games, television, or other pursuits that are far less important.
God is worthy of more than our leftovers; he deserves our best.
