Approaching God

Ecclesiastics 5:1 Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Go near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong.

When we pray or worship we must consider how we approach God. Because we have accepted Jesus into our hearts, minds and lives God is our Father, our Dad. So often we concentrate on the fact that He is our Father we tend to approach Him as we do our earthly fathers. God is most Holy and should be approached and spoken to in an attitude of awe and respectful, holy fear. It is not for us to tell God what to do but for us to ask what He wants to do through us. It is not for us to complain about situations on this earth but to rejoice that our home is in His Presence in heaven. It is not for us to feel proud of what we have but to be thankful we can give and desire to give even more. Let us keep in mind how it is we approach God in prayer and worship.
