Devo Father Part 2
Malachi 1:10-14 (NIV)
10 “Oh, that one of you would shut the temple doors, so that you would not light useless fires on my altar! I am not pleased with you,” says the Lord Almighty, “and I will accept no offering from your hands. 11 My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord Almighty.
12 “But you profane it by saying, ‘The Lord’s table is defiled,’ and, ‘Its food is contemptible.’ 13 And you say, ‘What a burden!’ and you sniff at it contemptuously,” says the Lord Almighty.
“When you bring injured, lame or diseased animals and offer them as sacrifices, should I accept them from your hands?” says the Lord. 14 “Cursed is the cheat who has an acceptable male in his flock and vows to give it, but then sacrifices a blemished animal to the Lord. For I am a great king,” says the Lord Almighty, “and my name is to be feared among the nations.
Wow! God shuts the door to His house. It is useless to bring God your left overs. He accepts the best only. Could you imagine getting to heaven and the doors being shut, or praying and your prayers bouncing off the doors of heaven, but that is what He is saying. God is great and greatly to be praised from generation to generation. Our children catch what we do. God is a great king and should be honored. How you treat your parents is how you are treating God.
