Mis-directed worship...

Mis-directed worship...."This is the essence of sin, and the story of all our lives. We have all set our hopes onto something or someone we thought was really impressive and important. Something we thought would really make us happy . . . money, another person, a position. So we examine the thing. We lean on it a little bit. We test it. We taste it. It seems good. We respect it a little more, so we lean on it a little more.

"Pretty soon we trust enough to place the full weight of our soul upon it, and then . . . crash. We end up disappointed. Despairing. Why?

"Because it wasn’t God. And everything crumbles under the weight of worship except God."

-- Matt Papa, "Look and Live: Behold the Soul-Thrilling, Sin-Destroying Glory of Christ"
