DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 23:1-22; Psalms 132:1-134:3; Mark 8:27-9:13

But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? For all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee. 1 Chronicles 29:14

David saw that there was no worth in the worshippers, only in Him who is to be worshipped. Our offering consists of presenting Christ, in all His worth, back to the Father. It is the Father’s own we give to Him. Like David, may our hearts in true worship declare: “Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty” (v. 11). —Pete Smith

Oh worship the Lord in the beauty of holinesss!
Bow down before Him, His glory proclaim;
With gold of obedience and incense of lowliness,
Kneel and adore Him; the Lord is His name. —John Monsell
