Giving To God

All things are God’s already; we can give him no right, by consecrating any, 
that he had not before, only we set it apart to his service—just as a gardener 
brings his master a basket of apricots, and presents them; his lord thanks him, 
and perhaps gives him something for his pains, and yet the apricots were as 
much his lord’s before as now.
- John Selden -
(1584-1654)
