Under Gods Command

Malachi 1:10 “Oh, that one of you would shut the temple doors, so that you would not light useless fires on my altar! I am not pleased with you, “says the LORD Almighty, “and I will accept no offering from your hands.    

As intermediaries between God and the people, priests were responsible for reflecting God’s attitudes and character.  By accepting imperfect sacrifices, they were leading the people to believe that God accepted those sacrifices as well.  But God says, “I am not pleased with you.”

Lets Bring it Home: As Christians, we are often in the same position as these priests because we reflect God to our friends and family.  What image of God’s character and attitude do they see in you?  If you casually accept sin, you are like these priests in Malachi’s day, and God will not be please with you.
