Offering

Sacrifice was never really about
The slaughter of animals
It’s hard to understand
In our society of plenty,
But back then, food was money
Your worth was based
On how easy it was
For you to feed your family
Not that much has changed
We still value this
But count or coins,
Not our flocks
Offering and sacrifice
Are about honoring God
With our very best
Not what’s left
But the first of it
The best of what we are
That is what offering’s about
