It is easier to offer God a few easy activities
"My son, give me your heart" Proverbs 23:26
"They first gave themselves to the Lord" 2 Corinthians 8:5
God wants, not so much your work, but you; at least He wants you first — and then your work. Service from hearts which are not really consecrated to God, is not pleasing to Him. We are in danger of forgetting this in our busy, bustling periods. It is easier to offer God a few easy activities — than to give Him our heart. The tendency of the religious life at present is to work and to serve — rather than to love God. So we need to remind ourselves continually, that loving must come before doing and serving. The largest and most noticeable work will find no acceptance with God — if our hearts are not His.
