LEFTOVERS

Does God Like Leftovers?

Although none of us would intentionally do so, we might occasionally find ourselves giving leftovers to the one who gave us his best. In the book of Malachi God addresses this issue, and what we find might shock you!

Leftover Leadership

 You may not even know it, but we all  are leaders.  The question is are we leading in a way that God approves. This Sunday we looked at Malachi the second chapter and see what God had to say about spiritual leadership. Are we giving God the best of our leadership energies or are we giving him whatever is left?

Leftover Treasure

Jesus says that “where our treasure is our heart will be also.” Are we offering to our Heavenly Father the leftovers of our passion, motivation and drive. Or can we honestly say that our heart is in the work of the Lord. No one truly can answer that question but you and God. In this lesson we continued our leftovers series asking the question; am I giving God my leftover treasure? Due to technical difficulties we were unable to record the actual service and have provided a podcast presentation of the material instead.

Leftover Relationships

Check back next Sunday to hear the final part of this series “leftovers”. 

When Jimmy Carter was campaigning for the presidency, he would often spent the night in the homes of common Americans. Suppose that the President and his wife decided to come to your home. The big evening arrives. Crowds line the streets as the presidential limousine pulls up in front of your house, escorted by police motorcycles, squad cars, and Secret Service agents. The President and his wife emerge from the limousine, wave to the crowds and news photographers, and walk to your front door.

 

You open the door wearing dirty jeans and a torn T-shirt and say, “Oh, hi! I’ve been working out in the garden.” As the President steps into the cluttered living room, you say, “Sorry about the mess, but my wife got engrossed in a reality show on TV this afternoon and didn’t get around to cleaning. But dinner’s almost ready. She’s heating up the leftovers in the microwave right now. Hope you don’t mind paper plates.”

 

That’s absurd, isn’t it? Even if you were poor, you would want to share your best. You would clean your house and maybe even freshen up the paint. You’d put your best dishes on the table and fix your favorite meal. A President deserves more than leftovers.

 

What about those things we serve to God? Although none of us would intentionally do so, we might occasionally find ourselves giving leftovers to the one who gave us his best. In the book of Malachi God addresses this issue, and what we find might shock you!
