I love it when kids are worshipping in large group. When kids are sincere and enthusiastic, it can put the most exuberant grown up worshipper to shame.
But something happens in the pre-teen years. You can always tell when kids start getting self-conscious and are “too cool” to lift their hands, dance and put their heart into worship.
Unfortunately, as we get older, it is more likely we get stuck not worshipping than to get stuck in the act of worshipping.
The more we rely on ourselves, the more we get stuck thinking we are the only answer to our problems. The less we worship, the less we can give God our problems. It comes back to my earlier posts on hope. Heaven help the person who relies solely on themselves! It is far better to get stuck in a pose of worship.
