Scripture:
“I bring no charges against you concerning your sacrifices
or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.
I have no need of a bull from your stall
or of goats from your pens,
for every animal of the forest is mine,
and the cattle on a thousand hills.
I know every bird in the mountains,
and the insects in the fields are mine.
If I were hungry I would not tell you,
for the world is mine, and all that is in it.” ~Psalm 50:8-12

Observation:
God is speaking and He makes it clear that the things we sacrifice aren’t needed by Him. We don’t really have anything other than worship to offer God.

Application:
God doesn’t need any of my talents, time, or money to accomplish anything. Yet, He allows me to contribute all 3 and be a part of His redemptive work. Nothing I sacrifice is needed by God. Still, He was willing to sacrifice His Son in order to set things right between us.

Prayer:
Father, I know that I have nothing that You need. My sacrifice is about my heart, not Your need. Help me to keep a loose grip on my time, talent, and money so that my heart will be right. The few meager things that I have are nothing in comparison to the incalculable gift that you gave. May I never forget that.
