Our attitude in giving – Morsel for a Feast?


Genesis 18:6-8 states that Abraham offered the Lord and the divine visitor, bread (cake) made from a considerable quantity of fine meal, a tender and good calf, butter and milk. Such an offer of edible items in those days as is it is now would be deemed a feast and yet if you see the attitude of Abraham, he refers to this as a morsel of bread (Genesis 18:5).

Such an expression shows to us the attitude of Abraham when it came to giving to the Lord. Even though he gave a feast he deemed it as nothing more than a morsel.

Points to ponder:
What do you deem your giving to the Lord to be? Unfortunately there are many who are distorting the truth, often trying to paint the meagre morsel they give to God, as feasts, instead of being like Abraham who gave his fine and good items to the Lord, but consider it to be little. Let us give our best to the Lord without making it more important than the offering itself. Are you and I giving a morsel or a feast to the Lord?

Genesis 18:6-8 (KJV)
And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.
And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.
And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.
And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.
