Around the 13th century the word "worship" became regularly used in the English language to describe a sense of reverence which was paid to a divine being.
From the origin of the word "worship", we have a better understanding of what our modern word for worship truly means. Anything that I esteem highly and place a great worth upon is, in essence, being "worshiped" be me.
What do you value the most? What do you place the greatest worth upon? We often answer "God" or "family". Take a look at your calendar. Take a look at your finances. Is "God" or "family" represented in your calendar or finances as what you value most? If not, what is? Your job? Your hobby? Yourself? What do you truly place the greatest worth in day to day?
In Luke 12:34 Jesus says, "Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Where do you place your treasures of time, money, and energy? Where you place these treasures you are declaring, "This is what is of greatest value to me. This is where I want my heart to be. This is what I worship." Look into your life and ask if you are "worth"shiping the wrong thing.
Next time I'll share with you two reasons why God is the Only One Worthy of My Worship.
