Daily Devotion – Giving Your Best to the Lord

Faith is taking the first step and trusting God with the second. It’s giving Him your best and trusting Him for the rest. One of the best examples of this is found in the story of Cain and Abel. Genesis chapter 4 tells us that Cain brought some of his fruit as an offering to God, while Abel brought the firstborn of his flock.

Like Cain, we can all give God some of our money, some of our time, and some of our resources but are we willing to give Him our best? Do we trust Him enough to provide if we do?

By bringing the firstborn of his flock, Abel was trusting God for the second, and third, etc. It’s like giving your first paycheck to God and trusting in His continued provision.

By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. (Hebrews 11:4, NIV)

Ask yourself today what you’re bringing to God. Are you giving Him your best? Are you trusting Him for the rest?
