Don't Forget The Break

David McPherson

It is always encouraging to see people revere God. It is our duty to "serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear" (Heb. 12:28). Applications of such can be seen in various ways.

One way we demonstrate reverence (or a lack of) is by our behavior during the worship services. Do we arrive early, well rested and prepared? Or do we casually stroll in at the last minute struggling to leave those "important" tasks of the day behind?

Do we dress as though we're coming to worship the God of the universe or more like we're going to a rooster fight? The way we answer these questions tells much about our attitude toward God and service rendered Him.

But there is a third area worth consideration. After we are assembled and engaged in worship, do we sit still and focus or do we get up, go to the back, hang out at the water cooler, kill some time in the bathroom, check out the bulletin board, etc., etc., etc. There are times when certain ones MUST be excused, true. But what about those who simply choose to distract others by cruising in and out of the auditorium? Please don't forget the break! Try to get your running around (and your kids') done during the fifteen minutes between Bible class and the worship service. Please be a help, not a hindrance to the services being conducted "decently and in order" (1 Cor. 14:40).
