Racing through worship

One morning during worship, my five-year-old daughter passed the collection-basket, as it came and went, with a greater sense of urgency than usual. I told her to slow down.

She responded by informing me the ushers were in a race. Less than a minute later she told me which one won.

I responded by telling her what a lot of us adults need to hear – worship isn’t a race.

I will meditate on Your precepts, and contemplate Your ways.” (Psalm 119:15 NKJV)
