“Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.” Matthew 5:23-24, NKJV
Any degree of sin in a believer’s life will taint the offertory of praise and worship to God. We must consistently take inventory of the contents of our hearts to ensure that our worship is pure before a holy God.
“The most important thing in the world while you’re on this side of eternity is that you learn to worship God. If you’re going to do it forever and ever, dear Lord, you ought to practice it now!” Leonard Ravenhill
