[June 2]
Ye shall offer unto the Lord; two lambs of the first year without spot day by day, for a continual burnt offering. The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other lamb shalt thou offer at even. Numbers 28:3, 4
BE OUR sacrifice ever so lame and imperfect, it is reckoned holy and without blemish if we presented it to the Father in and through the merit of our Redeemer; and if "holy and acceptable" through him (Romans 12:1; I Peter 2:5), the reward of sacrifice is ours, be our offering ever so small. But it must be a free will offering, and it must be a whole burnt offering; not the smallest piece can be kept back from the consuming fire of the altar. And none who have the Spirit of the Master will seek to keep back a part of their little all; they will feel, indeed, on the contrary, that at most it is but as offering dross for a jewel, for a pearl of great value. Z'89-Aug., p.1 R1133:1(Hymn 325)
