On a recent trip to Europe, we visited several old cathedrals, cemeteries, art galleries, museums, and other old buildings. For thousands of years people of different races and nationalities across many countries and continents have been worshipping God as they understood him in ways that seemed right in their culture and held meaning for them.
There is something within each of us that longs to know something greater than ourselves. That longing within is a desire/need/bent to worship.
Long ago, young Josh led his people into the land of inheritance they had been promised long before. When they began to settle in, he challenged those people to not forget the One who had led them during their travels and many conquests. And told them, as well, to choose who they were going to worship.
That’s key in all this worship talk – we get to choose who/what we are going to worship.
Choose wisely, young student!
