It’s 5-minute Friday time again, where we write for 5 minutes without worrying whether it’s just right, and this week Lisa-Jo’s picked a prompt that’s close to my heart: Worship. I enjoyed writing this, and if you want to join in, you can too. You can either write a post (like me), or share in the comments over on Lisa-Jo’s blog.

Worship; worth-ship. Expressing what God is worth, but how? Is He worth much if He’s just put in a box to bring out every morning when you read your Bible? Could the fact that you read your Bible before the day starts be a heart-cry to the Lord: “You come before everything else. I want to put You first”?
So what’s your expression? Maybe it’s singing. Maybe it’s dancing, and maybe even respected people in the church have told you you’re a showoff, but usually the ones who think you’re a showoff only think it because they feel too self-conscious to do the same thing themselves.
So tell Him what He’s worth. Tell Him in the songs and the dances; in the money that goes out of your bank account; in the love that spreads from you to others, and to Him. Tell Him what He’s worth – yes, give Him your worship.
