I have a son who hates leftovers. He will gorge himself so that he does not have to eat leftovers. I realize that he is not the only one who feels this way, and if I asked if any of you felt the same way, many of you would say you feel the same way. It is indeed why there are some science experiments in the refrigerator. We put them in the refrigerator figuring to eat them, but we didn’t honestly want them, so they stay there till we clean the refrigerator.
Suppose for a moment that the president or someone that you consider important was coming to have dinner with us at our house. Would any of us even dare to go to the icebox and pull out leftovers? No, of course not! If we would not give them leftovers, why should we think it would be alright to do that to the God of the universe. Again, suppose for a moment that God had said “I don’t want the inconvenience of dying on a cross”. We would still be in our sin, but Praise God! He gave all he had for us. Is it certainly too big of a thing to offer God the best of what we have. Better yet offer it all to God.
