The Direction of Worship

“Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love. Like your name, O God, your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with righteousness.” — Psalm 48:9-10

As a church worship leader, I appreciate the first sentence. How often do we consider worship to be like a meditation – a time of thoughtfulness and reflection?

Sometimes, I know I have approached worship with the desire for ME to get something out of the event, but completely forgetting the sheer purpose of worship. And that is to bring glory to GOD – giving Him my praise, and honoring Him for who He is. This can be a real challenge, looking at worship as something that should, first and foremost, be about giving to God. But I vow to focus on this perspective this week.
