Public Recognition?!

“Go to Bethel and sin;
go to Gilgal and sin yet more.
Bring your sacrifices every morning,
your tithesevery three years.
Burn leavened bread as a thank offering
and brag about your freewill offerings—
boast about them, you Israelites,
for this is what you love to do,”
declares the Sovereign Lord.

-Hosea 4:4-5

The Lord charged Israel of hypocritical worship. They only cared about being “seen” to worship God. It was an act of pride! It was an attitude, a motive for them to be “praised” for their “praise” of God!

Let my heart be pure when I worship you. I don’t want to worship for my own ‘gain’ or my own reputation or recognition.
