Our Worship Must Be God-Directed

The story is told of a man who entered an elaborate church edifice desirous of worshiping God. While observing the religious activities of the congregation, he was moved to tears by the beautiful harmony of the choir and his soul felt borne to heavenly heights as the organ breathed its soothing notes.

He listened intently to a lesson on “Doing good to all men” and uttered a silent “amen” to a beautifully read prayer. He not only left the sanctuary with a good clean feeling, but praised the beautiful structure in which he had worshiped God that day. He thought within himself, “Surely God was pleased with my worship today” — or was He?
