I was listening to Christian radio the other day, and heard a song. The song was catchy enough, but one of the lines in the chorus said something like ‘You are worthy of our prayers (or praise or something along those lines).’
It seems like a weird thing to say. That God is worthy of what we give Him? Really? I mean, I’m not saying that He’s not worthy… but rather, where do we get off?
I think it’s hard to describe, but it seems like a sort of pride to declare that after we’ve thought about it, we’ve decided that God is worthy of our worship. Who do we think we are?
