The One Place Of Worship
“Destroy completely all the places on the high mountains, on the hills and under every spreading tree, where the nations you are dispossessing worship their gods.”
Break free from their ways. Worship God alone. I read these words and think about all the pagan ways of old that I see in front of me as new. Lord help me to destroy completely all the idols, all the ways the world has taught me to worship temporary pleasures. Show me the joy of your love; true worship, true peace.
“Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year.” (Deuteronomy 14:22) God does not want us to withhold anything from him; rather, he wants us to celebrate with great joy:
Use the silver to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink, or anything you wish. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice. Deuteronomy 14:26
Don’t take this out of context, but don’t downplay the opportunity to rejoice in the presence of God!
