Make Me a Channel of Your Peace

Psalm 50:14
Offer praise as your sacrifice to God; fulfill your vows to the Most High.

Making sacrifices for God is a worthy gesture…if our hearts are in the right place. What is our motivation? Are we truly “giving up something” to get closer to God and to improve our relationship with God? Or are we trying to manipulate God to give us what we want? Are we trying to “win God over” to favor us? God already eternally loves us and favors us. Could it be that we find this hard to believe? The psalmist says that God needs nothing in the way of sacrifice. What God wants is a relationship with each of us. God wants to shower us with unconditional love to transform our hearts so that we become channels of God’s unconditional love in the world. When we are using our unique gifts and talents in the service of others we are giving praise to God!
