Would you say someone who watches 20 minutes of TV each week worships TV? Probably not. A person in our day who only watches only 20 minutes of TV each week would no doubt be classified as someone with very little interest in TV. That would be evidenced by the fact they spend so little time with it.
Would you say that someone who focuses on God 20 minutes a week worships God? If your study of God and His Word is limited to one 20 minute sermon once each week, what does that fact reveal about your true priorities?
Don’t be offended. I’m just asking an honest question. Our true priorities are often revealed by what we gravitate toward during our discretionary time. We generally make time for the things that really matter most to us; or to put it another way, the things we worship.
God warns us not to worship anything created by man. That’s because worshiping Him is the best way to redeem the time.
