First Fruits: A Harvest Offering

To all who celebrate Sukkot, Chag Sameach.

What do I choose to offer to others, to God, to myself? I often struggle to believe that what I have to offer is worthy. How do I receive the offerings of others? Am I judgmental or dismissive? Or just as I want God to be, can I be compassionate, acknowledging even the smallest gift as worthy?

Thinking about these questions led me to write a prayer about first fruits. It was just published on Ritualwell. I hope it resonates with you.
