Luke 15:22 NAS
The father said to his servants, "Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.

When we go out for a job interview we put our best foot forward so to speak. We make sure our clothes are cleaned, pressed, shoes shined, and our hair is in place. Think about that first date you went on. You wanted to make an impression so you picked out the best restaurant, cleaned your car, and made sure your clothes were in tip top shape. No loose strings, stains, or tears. You might have even gone out and bought new clothes.

Aunt Hazel came to visit and we put out the best china, cleaned the house, and made her favorite dish for dinner. You might want to call this putting on the airs but don't we want to give her the best we have?

How much more are we to give to our Lord? Do we not owe Him our best? Like my mother used to say. "Don't do the job half way, go the extra mile, and do your best."

When God asks us to do something we should give it our best. Think of how your earthly father is gladdened in what you do then magnify it one hundred times over. That is how God delights in you giving your best.

Gracious Heavenly Father I pray I do my best in all I do for You. To glorify Your name Lord. Amen.
