“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

– Matthew 5:23-24 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Notice that you don’t leave your offering if you have something against someone else; it is if you feel that someone has something against you. What a great act of humility it is to go to someone and ask them if there is something that you have done to offend them. Yet this is the kind of worship that God requires–we are to be at peace with all people as much as it is up to us.
