To Give Yourself

  We are taught to give ourselves unto the Lord. What does this mean? How can one tell whether the expected gift has really been given? This is determined by what one seeks in life. Does he seek purity, kindness and peace? Is he longsuffering, doing good works, attending to matters of a spiritual nature even before matters of the physical ad material?

  Does he live above the sinful level of this world, having his heart set on things above? What are his ideals in life, his aims and goals? What does one put first in his line of priorities?

  Matthew 6: 33, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." When one does this, he has given himself unto the Lord.
