I visited an old friend, Harry Hardy, last week. It was great to catch up over a cup of tea. It had been too long! I came away with several blessings. Sweet fellowship, personal encouragement and a boot load of books. Harry was clearing out.
One of those books has the title, “Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God”, by Andy Ritchie Jr. On pages 4 and 5 of the first chapter (“What is worship?”) the author has included a prose-poem. I reproduce it here in its entirety.
Why not read through it, pray through it, meditate on it and discover what God may say to you about worship? Is there something here for you to take to your own personal worship and when you lead others in worship? Might there be useful thinking with which your worship team could be inspired?
Question for today: “How do you define worship?”
