“Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart, in the company of the upright and in the assembly” (Psalm 111:1).
To worship God with all one’s heart is an exercise in discipline. The greatest challenge is overcoming our tendency to worship as an audience of consumers; that the elements of worship must align with my personal preferences and accommodate my chosen lifestyle. Such evaluations reveal one’s self to be the true god and object of one’s affections. In the maelstrom of life, it is the thankful hearted, alone, that are able to identify the true God and make him the undistracted focus of their worship.
