Quote of the Week

"How do we face troubles with peace, rest and equilibrium?  The ultimate way to handle the troubles of life is not just through prayers of petition, but through worship..."

Good quote.

Those words remind me of Job after hit with great personal loss and disaster. He worshiped (Job 1:20-21). This was the kind of person he was, and when afflicted with painful sores he did not sin in what he said, and had to rebuke his wife for telling him to curse God and die (my wife would never tell me to do that, by the way).

And so we have the book of Job due in no small part to the character of Job through grace. But a good challenge to me.

Worship. Yes. It leads us to look beyond ourselves.

Ted - thanks for your thoughts...Job definitely experienced the transforming power of worship

LL - the essence of worship - taking our eyes off ourselves and looking at Christ
