Sacrifice To God

In matters of religion, there are many varied ideas of how one should set out to please God and live in harmony with Him.  It is quite common, during this lent season, for people to get the idea that just giving something up that they normally do, will achieve that very goal.  I am certainly not saying that one cannot experience any benefit from such action, but the evidence of the Bible is that God demands our holiness all the time.  We should be equally dedicated to God on “Fat Tuesday” as we would be on “Ash Wednesday.”

David had it figured out, in Psalm 51:17, when he said, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.”
