sacrifices unto Me? saith the LORD: I am
full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight

their lives. Gomorrah
Do you think that God overlooks things like cheating on their spouse, unethical business choices or hateful behavior to others because they’ve put lots of money in the offering? God wants us to ask Him to forgive us and then, out of love for Him, we are to try to live as examples of how He works in our lives. This “Sin now, pay later tactic” just doesn’t work for God.
