Our offerings to the Divine have to be heartfelt. Nothing reaches the Absolute unless it comes from the heart… Here’s a Sai post on offerings to the Divine God..
It is enough even if a leaf or flower or fruit is offered to God in all reverence. God never questions the amount of time you have spent in worshipping Him or what you have placed as an offering. This is not important. It is the intend behind the action that matters. God’s grace is not determined by the size of the offering. It is a matter of supreme importance to be eager about God. We should always retain this fact as our focus. ~Baba From: Sathya Sai Sathy Sambhashana
