     Leftovers….  Now there is a post Thanksgiving thought to chew on for a few minutes.  I happen to enjoy leftovers; some things are even better the second day.  With all leftovers, there does come a certain point when they need to be discarded.  The prophet rebuked God’s people for offering “moldy bread” on the table of showbread [Malachi 1:7].  The following verses mention the people offering a blind or lame animal in sacrifice to the Lord.  All of this sends a message to us today:  be careful to offer God the best of what we have, not our leftovers.  This includes the best of our time, our treasures, and our talents.  May all that we give to the Lord be our very best.
