Who do we worship?
When we respect and worship God is it enough? Do we do what the Holy Mother Church asks of us?
We know we must worship God. The Saints are proof that we can reach the path of perfection by perseverance in the faith; however, sometimes we misunderstand the message and substitute the worship that is only meant to be for God, by worshipping other idols.
Daily life presents us many of these idols in the form of fortune telling, interpretation of dreams, horoscopes, etc.
This worship offends God and affects us directly. Such actions test God because we try to do God’s job wanting to know the future or wanting to change something that will happen.
It is obvious that if I don’t study for an exam, I might fail and yet I dare to see if my horoscope says that I will pass the exam. How can we expect a change in our ways if we don’t do anything on our part? God gives us free will so we are never forced to study for the test, therefore we cannot ask for the miracle of getting a good grade on the exam.
God is so good, that He even expects us to trust Him and ask Him to have the clarity to understand and remember what we have studied, but we need to study and do it. God cannot act alone; He needs us to do our part. Jesus himself tells us: Ask and you will be given, but we need to ask and not sit around waiting for a miracle. We need to act so that this miracle can take place, to do everything we can, and so God will manifest and the miracle will occur.
We do not need amulets, or fortune telling or coffee grounds readings. We just need to put our trust in God and our conversion daily. He will act slowly on us to ensure we deserve to enter into his kingdom.
