Who or what do you worship? Are you worshiping a person, lifestyle, money, clothing, cars or something else? Often times we turn our attention away from our main focus of worship, God, and we spend time worshiping insignificant materialistic things like the ones mentioned previously. Our purpose is to worship God not sometime, not when it is beneficial to us, but all the time. When Jesus was being tempted by Satan he told him in Matthew 4:10 CEB “Go away, Satan because it’s written, You will worship the Lord your God and serve only him.” Now don’t take what I’m saying the wrong way; I’m not saying that you can’t want or have nice things. What I am saying is that those nice things should not be revered or shown adoration. Yes, you should take care of them and respect what you have, but any reverence and/or adoration should be shown to God and him only. The bible tells us that we are to “worship God in spirit and truth”, John 4:23-24. I believe that worshipping people, lifestyles, money, etc. holds us back from receiving everything that God has for us. When we turn our focus away from the material and focus on the spiritual there is a positive shift that takes place in our lives.
When has worshiping a person, lifestyle, money, clothing, cars or something else ever gotten anyone anywhere? Never, the only thing anyone may have ever received from this is to land in the poor house or emotionally scarred. It’s time to move beyond the material trappings of life and set our sights on spiritual growth. Let’s take the necessary steps to begin the process of growth. Even if you don’t believe in God, you must admit that materialistic worship robs you financially, spiritually and emotionally. The purpose of this is to help as many people live the best life possible.
As always remember to Live, Laugh, Love
