I love it when God speaks to me through children's church. We started a new series today and our main point was that "only God is worthy of my worship".
In our video, one of the characters made a very interesting point that was so simple but really drove home the point.
See, we all worship something. The question is what/who do we worship. Worship is whatever we put our value on. As Christians, I think it's safe to say that we all want to worship Jesus. That's the Sunday School answer we've been taught, right?
And while that may be our ultimate goal, we (and I'm including myself here) typically fall short. Our intentions are good, but then life gets in the way. We plan on waking up early to spend time in God's word, but when our alarm clock doesn't go off and we're racing out the door trying to beat the school bus so we don't get stuck behind that bus going 20 miles an hour to work, God gets pushed to the end of the day and then we're exhausted.
So what does all this have to do with a guitar pick?
[I know, I can get off track easily!]
Back to our video in children's church. He talked about when we hear a guitar being played with it's catchy chords and head nodding beat, we rarely (if ever) say "Man, that guitar pick really did a good job!"
But when you think about it, it really IS the guitar pick that picks the strings to make the sounds that we love. However, we get so caught up in the music, that we don't focus on the pick.
When we make God first, we draw people's attention off of us and on to Him. THAT'S worship. Making God the priority in our life.
So, yes, my prayer is for God to make me a guitar pick. That I would be used by God to point people to Him.
