On this last day of October, children in the US will be carrying bags filled with sweets. Thinking of them can remind us to ask: “What is filling the vessel of my life?

I have probably ten Bibles in my house. I don’t have to walk two miles to read one, and I wouldn’t have to walk barefoot for 25 miles to own one. But the question is: would I? Is my passion for God great enough that I would make those sacrifices just to receive His Word?

I believe God loves the effort of more for Him. I think He wants us to make worship for Him special, remarkable, beautiful, ceremonial.
