The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices. (Proverbs 21:3 NLT)
A Christian is called to live a life that is an example. We ought not to preach and live different from how we preach. It grieves God to see us going about busily doing many things FOR him, but not living WITH him. God is more please when we decide not to take the $100 that has been left in plain site and could easily be taken up without any one seeing us, tan when we volunteer to feed 100 homeless people. Feeding the homeless is a great sacrifice, but if you're feeding the homeless with a tainted heart, God is not even looking at you.
What God requires from us is righteous living followed by sacrifices of ourselves and our time in response to need. So as we go about today, busily doing things FOR God, let us remember to couple that with obedience to his word. Remember it is not by works we are saved, but by grace through faith. Maintain your relationship with God though right living. Follow his commands and maintain a lifestyle that is holy.
