Worship God!

today's reading.
Deuteronomy 4:15    "Therefore watch yourselves very carefully. Since you saw no form on the day that the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the midst of the fire...

Moses is speaking to the Israelites in Deuteronomy 4:15-31 and warning them about falling away from God and worshipping things other than God. Now this is life-impacting, critical information so Moses doesn't sugar coat anything. He is forthright, and very assertively lays out the destruction that will happen to them if they break their covenant with God. But Moses doesn't just play the heavy. He also talks about turning back to God with these words: "For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not leave you or destroy you or forget the covenant with your fathers that he swore to them" (vs. 31). 

So how do you keep your worship focused on God? What are some things that pull you away? How has God been a merciful God to you in those times when you have fallen away and returned?Tami W.
