One way to look at worship is to think of it as "worth-ship." When we worship something, we declare that it is worthy (Psalm 145:3). The Greek word used for "worship" implies an attitude of reverence. It also includes such physical gestures as kissing the hand or kneeling (Psalm 95:6). We worship something when we act as if it has value. By nature, human beings are worshippers. Sometimes our worship is focused on that which is actually worthy of reverence (like God). Other times it is misdirected (for instance, we worship our work or our bank accounts or fashion or a political icon).
