As you prepare for worship

Today, you are preparing for worship–getting dressed, having your morning coffee, if you have small children, chasing them around the house so that they are prepared. If you have teenagers, you might have a fight of some kind.

Take time today to think about what you are doing when you worship. Ask yourself, “What difference will it make that I am worshipping today?” “What benefit do I expect to receive from the Word today?” “Can I pray for others that today will be a day of growth?”

Do you expect to grow today?
