This devotional is brought to you by Pacific Press® Publishing Association.
Our best offering to God is ourselves. Strange as it may seem, we are the most valuable asset we have to give. This is true only because of what Jesus has done for us. By giving ourselves, we put God first with our best offering. Mary understood this when she offered her best to Jesus. In the twenty-first century, that bottle of perfume might be worth about US$44,000. She knew the sacrifice that Jesus would soon make. Those who love much give much, and those who love little give little.
When we give an offering, we are giving back to God what is His in the first place. He accepts it from a heart filled with gratitude.
