Who do I worship?

Well, now that I have visited the Alzheimer’s unit at the local care center and donated 2500 grains of rice to the hungry (I got to level 45) surely I’ve done enough good deeds for today.  So now can I criticize the culture of some of those hungry people?


This news_article caught my eye the other day, and I find it really ironic.  The monkeys in New Delhi, India are attacking people, stealing their food, and generally proving themselves to be a royal nuisance.  So why don’t these hungry folks just make monkey stew, you ask?  Well, since most of the people in India are Hindu, they worship monkeys, so of course you can never kill them.  And we, who do not worship the creatures, look on from the outside and shake our heads in disbelief.  


Much as I love to watch monkeys, I think it would really irritate me to have one make off with my sandwich just as I was about to take a bite!  How can anyone worship something so small, so capricious, as a monkey??  But has it ever occurred to you that many people in our Western culture worship small, insignificant things as well?  Many people worship money, or fame, or other men.  Any of those things can fail you at any time without notice.  None of them can be depended on. 


And what can be depended on?  Well, in the world we inhabit, though none of it is truly permanent, nothing seems to be quite so immovable as rock.  Perhaps that’s why Jesus is compared to a rock.  Luke_6:48-49  What else can I worship but the most enduring, the most solid One of all?  He was before the beginning and will live eternally.  He’s the Rock of my salvation, the only one who will NEVER let me down!  Lord, help me to build with only Him as foundation, to worship only HIM.

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    They need to worship the ONE worthy of true worship…and have the monkey stew. God is providing and they are ignoring.  Sad.

    A great post——We can always depend on HIM.  JESUS is our rock of salvation. We just heard a question asked “Are we ready for Christmas?” ——“Are we ready for CHRIST?”——Have a wonderful week!!

    Cerene–not only the monkeys, but ALL those cows!  Driving is treacherous because the beasts roam everywhere, but of course the starving people can’t have a hamburger.  I agree, it’s quite sad.
