Everyday,all day long.
Everywhere you go,you worship. It’s what you do. It’s who you are.
I don’t know if or not you consider yourself a “worshipping” kind of person,but you cannot help but worship- something. It’s what you were made to do.
Worship is our response to what we value most. Worship about saying, “This person, this thing, this experience is what matters most to me- It’s the thing I put first in my life.”
That thing might be a relationship. A dream. Friends. Status. Stuff. A name. Some kind of pleasure. Whatever name you put on it, this thing or person is what you have concluded in your heart is worth most to you. And whatever is what most to you is what you worship.
Some of us attend the church on the corner, professing to worship the living God above all. Others who rarely step inside the church indoors would say worship isn’t a part of their lives because they aren’t religious. But everybody has an altar. And every altar has a throne.So how do you know where and what you worship? It’s easy. You simply follow the trail of your time,your affection,your energy,your money and your loyalty. At the end of that trail,you find a throne, and whatever or whomever is on that throne is what’s of highest value to you.On that throne is what you worship.
Some,not too many of us walk around saying, I worship my stuff. I worship my Xbox. I worship my job. I worship this pleasure. I worship her. I worship my body. I worship me!
But the trail never lie. We may say we value this thing or that thing more than any other,but the volume of our actions speak louder than our words.
In the end,our worship is more about what we do than what we say.
Worship is the activity of the human soul. Not only do all people worship,but they worship all the time.Worship isn’t just a Sunday thing. It’s an all-the-time thing.
If a stranger looked over your actions and words from the last 24hours, what might he or she conclude that you worship?
