Hebrews 13:10(KJV); We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.
Some people are quick to covet a man’s success without understanding his sacrifice.
They may see the fruits of his labours but with no clue as to the amount of blood and sweat that went into the man’s work.
Because of this blindness, they may seek to be partakers of the same altar not knowing that the Bible provides that there are altars you have no right to eat from because you do not understand the level of sacrifice that such an altar demands.
If a man gave everything he had in the pureness of his heart to the Lord because he is zealous for the advancement of the gospel, you have no right to eat on the same altar with that man if there are things you can withhold from the Lord.
If a man labours day and night to evangelise to the extent of almost losing his own life because he must draw souls into the kingdom of God, you have no right to eat on the same altar if your approach to soul-winning is to do it only when you feel like.
If a man is continually dealt with by God to love earnestly his enemies and those who hate him without cause, you have no right to eat on the same altar when you lash out at people for the slightest offence.
Before you seek the privileges of an altar, you must first understand its sacrifices.

PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this word. I receive this wisdom with humility. Thank You for stirring in me the zeal that gives all and holds nothing back from You. I yield to Your Spirit to work through me and break me for whatever purpose You have designed for my life, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
