For what we are worshiping we are becoming
So wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson.
An interesting thought - don't you think?
We become similar in behavior and character to those that we worship.
So, what do you worship?
Not an easy question to answer. So perhaps try these questions instead.
What matters most to me? Whom do I care about most?
Who or what gets my devoted attention and loyalty?
What's my top priority? Where does my time, energy and money go?
The first of the commandments given by God to His people says simply: You shall have no other gods.
Here's the thing.
You and I were made to worship. And if we're not worshiping our Creator, then were trying to put something else in His rightful place.
That's a challenge for us - isn't it? Surrounded by things we've bought. Tempted to buy more. Under constant pressure to do more and more.
How can we, as God followers in Lower Earley, make sure that God gets the right priority in our lives?
