WORSHIP IS MORE THAN EXPERIENCE


There was a woman who went on a short term missions trip to Kenya, helping the missionaries there. Before she left, she stopped at a remote village where she attended a medical clinic. As the native women outside the clinic began to sing together, she found herself deeply moved by their beautiful singing. The harmonies and rhythms seemed worshipful indeed.


She was so moved she began to cry. Since she wanted to capture the moment in her memories, she turned to her bi-lingual friend and queried, "Could you please translate the words to that absolutely beautiful song?"


Her friend stared at her and respectfully replied, "If you boil the water, you won’t get dysentery."


Worship is more than a feeling or experience. It involves an understanding.
