What is Worship?
“Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you.” James 4:8
The young boy worked hard almost every afternoon, shining shoes for the people who passed by. No one ever paid him much, only a few cents for a good shine, but the boy didn’t complain. He wanted to buy a bicycle! No matter how hard he had to work, it was worth it!
What is “worth it” to you? Take a look at how you spent your time last week, and you’ll get a pretty good idea. Did you spend most of your time with friends? Watching TV? Playing on the computer? How much time did you spend with God? Did you worship him?
What is worship? Some people think worship is only what Christians do at church on Sundays, but worship is much more! Worship is showing God he is “worth it” to you. You can worship God as you sing songs, pray and give money at church. You can also worship when you do ordinary things like obeying your parents. However, just doing those things isn’t worship. Worship is doing those things in a way that shows God you think he’s awesome. It’s something you can and should do every minute of your life!
Discussion: What will you do to show God He is worth it to you?
You can pray: Dear God, you are worth it! Help me to love and worship you more each day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
