Worthship – Honoring the One Who is Worthy Ben Juster
It is an all too common experience. You prepare a fragrant, steaming cup of coffee or tea, sit down with your Bible and journal laid out beside you, and turn on some soft worship music in the background. You woke up early just so that you could make sure you didn’t get distracted today and set aside at least a half hour before you need to get ready for school or work. Yet, no sooner did you sit down, a notification pops up on your phone . . . well, just one look. The one look turns into 5 minutes of scrolling aimlessly. “Ok, focus!” as you put the phone down and again pick up your Bible.
After reading a few verses, the dog or cat lets you know that they are also up early with you this morning and demands your attention. You take the dog out or feed the cat. Another 5 minutes goes by. Back to the chair. As you read a few more verses, you start to think about the things you don’t want to forget as you get ready for work or school. Your mind wanders to think about the day’s agenda. Wow, another 5 minutes has passed already? “I have to make sure that this last 15 minutes counts,” and you commit with subdued hopefulness.
