Isaiah 1:11. “Of what importance to me are your many sacrifices?” says the Lord. “I am stuffed with burnt sacrifices of rams and the fat from steers. The blood of bulls, lambs, and goats I do not want.

This verse can’t possibly apply to us. We don’t do animal sacrifices. What about sitting in church and going through the movements of worship when our minds and/or hearts or elsewhere. Maybe we’re thinking about what someone’s wearing, what someone said to us or did to us or where we’re going to eat after. Maybe we’re looking at our watches wondering how much longer. If our mind’s on anything except God this verse applies to us. Admit it. We’ve all been guilty. Offering the sacrifice of praise means putting all else aside and praising God with all our heart, mind and body. Our question is do we really want to put our praise and worship of God ahead of all else? Hoe about trying it for just one hour? Start small and grow.
