Malachi 1:2; Malachi 1:6-7 (The Message)

2 God said, "I love you." You replied, "Really? How have you loved us?" 6 "Isn't it true that a son honors his father and a worker his master? So if I'm your Father, where's the honor? If I'm your Master, where's the respect?" God-of-the-Angel-Armies is calling you on the carpet: "You priests despise me! "You say, 'Not so! How do we despise you?' "By your shoddy, sloppy, defiling worship. "You ask, 'What do you mean, "defiling"? What's defiling about it?' 7 "When you say, 'The altar of God is not important anymore; worship of God is no longer a priority,' that's defiling.
