Struggle for the Best

God expects us to give Him the best, not second best, not leftovers from what we have given to worldly pursuits. It's a challenge that faces all who enter the path of conversion. We need to turn our lives topsy turvy so that God is not at the bottom of our to-do list but at the top. He deserves the first fruits, as the Jewish people knew, not the stragglers left over after the best has been plucked. May God grant us the grace to serve Him the best we can.
