    If you are righteous, what do you give to God?  Or what does God receive from your hand?

    "If you are righteous?" I think that would be so cool. But I would probably puff out my chest too far and parade around.
    My only gift to God are my wonderful 4 children who love. Well maybe my love too.

    Very nice question.

    Righteous or not righteous, that is God's place to judge,because sometime we do not know what offenses we may be making at any given time.  All I could offer God is my love and a life of devotion, God owns everything eles.

    Best wishes

    If you are a righteous  person, you don't need to think of anything to give God cause the way you are being righteous is just enough to God. Remember, he wanted us to do his commandments, and being a righteous man is the greatest gift that we can offer to God

    well I am born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit so Jesus says I am righteous (by virtue of putting on His righteousness) so I will give Him my obedience which He prizes.   
    Rom 5:19  for as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man's obedience many will be made righteous.

    1 Sam 15:22  As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
    Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,

      I am impressed for I have never met a self proclaimed righteous man.

      to eric---leave it to you to misunderstand and twist what i said as usual.  Apparently this is a game to you but it is not to me.  All I did was say what scripture says.  no self proclamation involved.  this is supposed to be a CHristian question.

    This is a very interesting question. I think the supreme power that rules Heaven and Earth requires nothing more from mere mortals than our love. However, I could be wrong so I'll ask Her tonight in my prayers.

    "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."   There is cleansing Power within His Word!''  1 JOHN 1:9
    ~ I believe in Jesus Christ and His Word!  I am only righteous because of  God's Grace. I have no righteousness of my own. I accept that I have been declared righteous through Jesus Christ my Lord & Savior!   Therefore I give the Lord my heart and submit to His Will & His Way and  commit to readily repent whenever  necessary.   I daily continue to  spiritually grow by His Grace... ~

    The Hebrew word translated as righteous is צדיק and is pronounced tsadiyq
    tsadiyq is one who remains on the path. The path is the course through life which God has outlined for us in his word.
    So what do I give to God?
    I give God obedience to His word.
