For weeks the missionaries had been planning a special event for the children in the West Indies. They had encouraged each of the children to bring a special gift for the Lord when they came to Sunday school.
Finally, the moment arrived when the leader said, "Come, children, bring your gift to the altar." Everyone stood, came forward, gave their gifts and then returned to their seats. All except one.
"Why are you standing there?" the leader asked.
"I have nothing to give the Lord except me, so I just stood here and prayed asking if He wants me."
And that's exactly what He wants.
Paul pleads that we "present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship."
What an example this small child is to each of us. There she stood while others gave their gifts. But she gave God the most valuable gift - her body. Can we do less?
