Do you ever find yourself partaking in something which seems to pose no danger?
There are many things in life that appear beautiful on the outside. But when you really dig beneath the surface, great dangers exist.
Take last Monday’s solar eclipse, for example. The moon covered the sun. The sky darkened. And millions of people scurried to see it with their own eyes—protected, of course.
Imagine this… God appears to you. Let’s say in the form of a dream. With a smile on His face, He asks you a simple question, “What do you want?”
Solomon doesn’t need to imagine because it actually happens to him.
“That night the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream, and God said, ‘What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!’” (1 Kings 3:5 NLT).
That’s not a good thing. We’re called to worship.
“But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way” (John 4:23 NLT).
One way we worship is by investing our God-given talents, skills, and gifts.
“It’s a re-run. You’ve seen this a thousand times!”
Yeah, but a thousand times isn’t enough. Not when it comes to the blessings of God. Not when it comes to the time He saved your soul. Healed your body. Made a way. Protected you from a car wreck.
