Then Samuel went to Saul, and Saul said to him, “Blessed are you of the Lord ! I have performed the commandment of the Lord .” But Samuel said, “What then is this bleating of the sheep in my ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?” And Saul said, “They have brought them from the Amalekites; for the people spared the best of the sheep and the oxen, to sacrifice to the Lord your God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.”
I Samuel 15:13-15 NKJV

Who you are to God is far more important than what you offer to Him. The true worship or sacrifice that God desires includes your ears that are opened to His command, your heart that is receptive to His Word, your body that is wholly yielded to God and your life that you have completely surrendered to do His will.

This is the true and acceptable worship God will not despise. Anything different from this is a fraud, and it will not attract His blessings but will provoke His wrath.

Therefore, as you set out this new week, be careful of where you go, what you do and the whose instruction or counsel you follow. Anything outside what God has commanded is an error with
eternal consequences. May the Lord help you to carefully keep to His word and obey His counsel fully in Jesus name. Good morning and do have a blessed and fruitful week.

Your brother,
