God calls on Israel, and believers today, to present thank offerings and to fulfill our commitments to him. Not because it benefits God, but because it benefits us. When we are faithful to him, we can count on God’s faithfulness to us. He invites to call on him in our times of trouble. When we do, he will delight in delivering us. God’s desire is to help those who come to him in their need, seeking what only he can give. So unlike the gods of the ancient world; or of our world today.
