One of my best friends worked for a company that made nothing, but earned millions in profits every year.
I know. That’s the kind of world we live in. But I am personally thankful for the work they and companies like them do because their work saved my life. I have had four bypasses, three stents, multiple angiograms to count, too many days in the hospital, etc.
Andy worked for a company who worked with hospitals to ensure their equipment were functioning within acceptable tolerance. The equipment and the machines our doctors use must operate within an extremely tight window of acceptable tolerance. The equipment is only useful if the readings are reading correctly. If the readings are off then the equipment is not only useless, it is dangerous.
Andy’s company made sure that the equipment used in hospitals and by doctors were operating within acceptable tolerance.
Isn’t it interesting that through regular use, and with time, equipment drifts. And very rarely does it drift toward perfection. It always drifts further from acceptable tolerance.
Equipment needs regular recalibrating. The same goes with us.
Our focus, perspective, hopes, goals, dreams tend to drift away from God’s best for us. In time, we forget God.
Regular worship is our weekly recalibration. We need it because we drift. We get further away from acceptable tolerance and worship brings us back.
So, when’s the last time you’ve been in God’s house to worship God? Isn’t it time for a recalibration?
