Daily Devotion: Double D - Dedication

Bible Reading:  Genesis 22:1-14

Key Verse: Verse 10 – “And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.”

Key Words: to slay his son

I doubt that, outside of God giving His only Begotten Son that we may have eternal life, that you would find a greater picture of dedication in all of God’s Word.  Would you not agree with me that Abraham’s dedication to God led him to be willing to give his very best to God?

One day while walking with some children, Queen Mary was caught in a sudden shower.  Quickly taking shelter on the porch of a home, she knocked at the door and asked to borrow an umbrella.  “I’ll send it back tomorrow,” she said.  The queen had deliberately disguised her appearance by putting on a hat that partly covered her face and by wearing very plain clothing.  The householder, reluctant to give a stranger her best umbrella, offered her a castoff she found in the attic.  One rib was broken and there were several holes in it.  Apologizing, she turned it over to the monarch, whom she did not recognize.  The next day she had another visitor – a man with a gold braid on his uniform and an envelope in his hand.  “The queen sent me with this letter,” he said, “and also asked me to thank you personally for the loan of your umbrella.”  Stunned, the woman burst into tears.  “Oh, what opportunity I missed that I did not give her my very best,” she cried.

The test of your dedication to God today and everyday will be, “Did you give Him your best?”

What to do:
✞ Give God your very best every moment of every day.
