Created to Worship

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 8 (day five) I saw this quote again this week. “A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) Creation, nature, and the “work of Your Hands” (Psalm 8: 3, 6) satisfies our nature/need to worship, and brings glory to the Living God who created it all. He has displayed His majesty, strength, and power for us to be in awe of Him. He has met our need and desire to worship (something or someone) with Himself. Our worship of the Living God is both for His Glory (the praise of His creation) and our good (becoming like Him).
