And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
Knowing the power of any heart-felt sacrifice and gift to God will totally change the way we see giving. Here we see the impact of Noah’s sacrifice on the heart of God. God smelled a sweet savour and the LORD said in His heart!!! Remember Philippians 4:18-19. Know indeed that the sweet-smelling savour rises to God anytime, anyone offers an acceptable sacrifice privately or in a public worship. And the blessings that follow are not only personal but can be far reaching to affect the world and generations.
