Scripture:

For you have no delight in sacrifice; If I were to give a burnt offering, you would not be pleased.  Psalms 51: 16

Meditation:

But what would please God, are offerings given from the heart of devotion.  Time taken to pray, serve the poor or oppressed, the church, the community, time taken to read and learn what more can be done to help our brothers and sisters.  In our busy lives, this time might be considered a “sacrifice” but with the help and guidance from God, the burden is light, and the reward is a feeling of worth and value.

Prayer:

God be in my heart and in my actions. Help me to discern where my sacrifice belongs.
