Our best isn’t good enough. The best we have to offer is filthy rags. No matter how meek, mild, and pious you may be or how great and well-spoken you may be — filthy rags is the only offering available to God.
You may be little-known or have a name that, when spoken, sets social networking toward a flurry of retweets, likes, and shares. Filthy rags is all you have to offer a Holy God. HE must laugh at our meager attempts to please HIM.
God’s Word says, “Job 22:3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art righteous? or is it gain to him, that thou makest thy ways perfect?”
