    unknowingly offered it to god

    As soon as he touches the flowers, he will have unknowingly offered it to god.



    I understood the above sentence like this :

    As soon as he touches the flowers, he will provide the flower to god.


    Is it right?

    Could you give the wider context?

    It can't be that, because the 'it' is singular. One could guess at a couple of possible singular antecedents for 'it' - the flower display, or the experience of touching the flowers. But, as Tdol suggests, it's not possible to answer without more context.
