       beholding as in a mirror the glory

                           Humility
1 Corinthians 10:14-22
      Therefore, my beloved, flee from
      idolatry. 15 I speak as to wise men;
      you judge what I say.16 Is not the cup
      of blessing which we bless a sharing
      in the blood of Christ? Is not the
      bread which we break a sharing in
      the body of Christ?
1 Corinthians 10:14-22

      17 Since there is one bread, we who
      are many are one body; for we all
      partake of the one bread. 18 Look at
      the nation Israel; are not those who
      eat the sacrifices sharers in the
      altar?
1 Corinthians 10:14-22
      19 What do I mean then? That a thing
      sacrificed to idols is anything, or that
      an idol is anything? 20 No, but I say
      that the things which the Gentiles
      sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons
      and not to God; and I do not want you
      to become sharers in demons.
1 Corinthians 10:14-22
      21You cannot drink the cup of the
      Lord and the cup of demons; you
      cannot partake of the table of the
      Lord and the table of demons. 22 Or
      do we provoke the Lord to jealousy?
      We are not stronger than He, are we?
                                 NASU
1 Corinthians 10:14-22

Malachi 1:6-14
     O priests who despise My name. But
     you say, 'How have we despised
     Your name?' 7 "You are presenting
     defiled food upon My altar. But you
     say, 'How have we defiled You?' In
     that you say, 'The table of the LORD is
     to be despised.'
Malachi 1:6-14
     8 "But when you present the blind for
     sacrifice, is it not evil? And when you
     present the lame and sick, is it not
     evil? Why not offer it to your
     governor? Would he be pleased with
     you? Or would he receive you
     kindly?" says the LORD of hosts.
Malachi 1:6-14
     11 "For from the rising of the sun
     even to its setting, My name will be
     great among the nations, and in
     every place incense is going to be
     offered to My name, and a grain
     offering that is pure; for My name will
     be great among the nations," says
     the LORD of hosts.
Malachi 1:6-14

     13 "You also say, ' My, how tiresome it
     is!' And you disdainfully sniff at it,"
     says the LORD of hosts, "and you
     bring what was taken by robbery and
     what is lame or sick; so you bring the
     offering!
Malachi 1:6-14

     14"But cursed be the swindler who
     has a male in his flock and vows it,
     but sacrifices a blemished animal to
     the Lord, for I am a great King," says
     the LORD of hosts, "and My name is
     feared among the nations." NASU
Conclusion:

        Let us remember that to despise
         the table of the Lord is to offer that
         which is not our best.
        Our best can only be that which
         flows freely from our loving hearts
         guided by His will.
