Worship is the first and primary area where God expects to see our response to His love. And yet we often bring Him worship leftovers.

Just as children starve emotionally when they fail to experience a parent’s love, people limp along spiritually when they don’t experience the love of God.

This passage from Malachi shows us how God proves His love.
