Questionable Gift

Would you eat this soup?

Last year someone brought an unusual donation to a food bank in Wales. It was a can of soup. “What is so unusual about that?” you might ask. This particular can of soup was at least 46 years old!

The price was still visibly stamped on the can, so someone did the research and found that the soup had been produced nearly a half century ago.

I am not sure what was done with the can of soup, but, needless to say, it is not the kind of gift that the food bank expects.

We need to be careful about what we bring to God. He is not pleased with substandard offerings of our time, talent and treasure. He wants our best, and we should always strive to give him good gifts.

“Bring the best of the firstfruits of your soil to the house of the Lord your God…”—Exodus 23:19.
