I am at a loss in how to plan my cooking so the dish is always empty and no taste has been lost by decreasing the ingredients to make a smaller dish. The goal of a clean plate is an elusive target.
Why after the third serving--even the dog would refuse the left over remains!
I looked up the definition of left-overs
I began thinking--am I inviting God to my table first---or am I giving Him the leftovers--the residue--the throwback. My time, my talents, my service, my finances--do I serve Him the First Fruits? Am I fulfilling my own self centered needs and desires and then as a second thought giving Him what is left?
Do I ask Him to the first seating at my table---or remember Him at the second or third seating? Am I offering him what is left--that the dogs even turn their noses up at? OH---Lord have mercy on me!
Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce;
