Malachi 3:14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: And what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, And that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?
What a sad commentary we find here. God’s people claimed that serving God wasn’t profitable for them. They obeyed God but saw no gain from it. They were looking at God with the idea that He should give them something for serving Him.
I am afraid that many people feel that way today. You think that God only takes away joy and fun. You believe that God hinders rather than helps. You do not want to serve God because you believe it is not worth it.
That is so not true. God is more than worth it. As you serve Him, you will see the advantages. Real joy, real life is found in serving God. He makes life worth living. I challenge you to honor God and see what a blessing He is. Those that hate God will tell you that He isn’t worth it, but you will not find one that loves Him that will ever say that.
