Make Things Right Before You Make Another Move

“Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.” - Matthew 5:24

Jesus tells us to leave our offering and make things right with a brother before we can worship. No one can be right with God and consciously wrong with his brother.

Now, notice that Jesus doesn’t say that you need to leave your tithe and go reconcile with a brother if you have something against him (see Matthew 18:15-20). Here, Jesus is saying that you need to get things right with a brother who has something against you.

Before you sing, before you pray, before you teach, before you give, before you worship, the Bible says you are first to be reconciled to your brother. There is no offering on earth that can substitute for getting right with your brother. As far as you know, is there someone who is harboring ill feelings toward you? Then the Lord says, “Leave it there and go get it right.”
