The following comment is inspired by Matthew 5:23-24," leave your gift there before the altar." A alter is more than just a symbol, particularly in the Christian church. Its a place where the Holy
Of Holies is, who is God. It is not to be taken lightly but respected and honored. We approach the altar to present ourselves before God, to bring gifts, having a repenting heart in meekness and prayer. When doing these things our mind should be free
from junk. Jesus is teaching that when we come before God, knowing we are fighting with our brother or sister, leave the gift at the altar, or wait, and go clear the air with our brother or sister.
