Made to Worship

In conjunction with this week's Pastoral Word, I found this quote fascinating and helpful.

"Kids love to be amazed. That is why we enjoy watching sports on TV. We love to marvel at amazing feats that ordinary mortals cannot accomplish. Whether football, basketball, ice skating or skiing, we love to be dazzled by athleticism. This is uniquely human… A brown bear grabs a salmon from the raging Columbia River. No bears line the shores applauding. Little bears don’t idolize Big Brown. They don’t hang posters of him in their dens. Idolizing greatness is innately human. We are made in the image of God and engineered for worship. We are fashioned for the fascination his glory evokes. Worship is a response to greatness."

I love this quote by Tripp. Being "engineered for worship" is a beautiful thing until the object of our worship becomes anyTHING or anyONE but the one true God.
