“Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in His heart: ‘Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.”
– Genesis 8:20-21
Holy Spirit, make me life a pleasing sacrifice to You. I want to be someone whom the Lord sees and is filled with compassion for the rest of humankind. I want Him to see me and know that we are worth saving – not because of me, but because Your work in and through me gives Him hope about what we can become.
