what we worship

Ask yourself what you worship.  I hope the answer is God.   But if you look at how people act and how people talk, we all know that people worship other things than God.  Even good Christians worship things besides God.

Some Christians put their church before God.  Your church is good, but it is not God.
Some Christians put the bible before God.  The bible is great, but it is not God.
Some Christians put their doctrine before God.
On and on we can go.

It is easier for us to worship things like this because we can hold them and manage them.  They are finite and fit into our box.  God is not managed by us, nor does he fit into our box.

A good church points us to God.  The bible points us to God, but it is not God.  Doctrine should connect us with God.  All three are the means to the end, not the end.

They are not the moon, they are the finger that points at the moon.

May we always keep God in his rightful place.  What do you worship?

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

How then DO we worship God if it's not by the ways that that point us to him? Did I miss the point?
