Beloved, are you ministering to Christ? Arc you doing it with your hands? Are you doing it with your substance and with your gifts? Is He getting the best at your table? And when He does not come to fill the chair, is it free to His representative, His poor and humble children? Your words and wishes are cheap if they do not find expression in your actual gifts. Even Mary did not put Him off with the incense of her heart. Rather, she laid her costliest gift at His feet. Busy person, you who work so hard to dress your children and furnish your home and table, what have your hands earned for the Master? What have you done or sacrificed for Jesus? "Can you afford it?" was the question asked of an earnest woman as she promised a costly offering for the Master's work. "No," was her noble reply, "but I can sacrifice it." Let us today look around us and see what we are presently doing. Then let us give more to the loving Savior, who gave up His whole life for us.
