Why do we worship God, or why does He require worship? Is He insecure, requiring affirmation from His creation? Or could it be an ego trip? Or do we worship just to remain in His ‘good books’? I do not wish to be offensive, but these are questions that are out there and require an answer.
The truth is, none of those answers to the question of “why worship?” come close to the mark. What is worship, but the attribution of worth? The English word “worship” comes from two Old English words: weorth, which means “worth,” and scipe or ship, which means something like shape or “quality.”
Consider the sunrise below. Is it not beautiful and praise-worthy? How much more so then is God!
The point being, that praise is intrinsic to the object.
