My book for the next five weeks is Prosperity’s Ten Commandments by Georgia Tree West.
You may remember the Second Commandment: You shall not make for yourself an idol; you shall not bow down to them or worship them.
Think about the word worship. It is what we focus on, what we spend time with, what we give our attention to.
Consider the story of Samson and Delilah in the Old Testament. Samson, who had very long hair (which was the source of his strength) was very taken with Delilah. What he didn’t know was that Delilah had been hired by the Philistines to find out all about Samson and why he was so strong. So Samson spent a great deal of time with Delilah, and teased her about the source of his strength. She finally said, paraphrased, “if you really loved me, you’d tell me.” So he did, and the Philistines came in the night and cut his hair.
Who and what do we spend time with? Do we hang out with positive, life affirming people who believe in us and our dreams? Or do we “worship” lack, limitation and struggle?
