My family, friends, and students know me so well! They showered me with love for my birthday in the form of KK doughnuts, sweet pickles, coffee, mint/chocolate candy, a CD of my favorite artist, a sweet book, a Duck Dynasty shirt, and more! All things they knew I would love! Dunkin' Doughnuts, pumpkin anything, or nasty dill pickles would not have been the same. They know me! They know what I like because of our time and history together. It's a silly analogy, but it made me think of how I need to KNOW God to know how to show Him love. Do I know Him well enough to bring Him the gifts He wants? Have I spent enough time with Him in His word to know how to show Him love in the way that is pleasing to Him? Do I give Him gifts with thought or give Him what I think He should want?
Dear Lord, please find my offerings of praise acceptable and pleasing! Please know that what I offer is my way of giving you my heart and soul. It is yours...you are all I want to worship!
