When you hear the word “worship” what do you think of? Do you think of singing songs to Jesus? Do you think of a church service? Christian music maybe?

Have you ever stopped and thought about what worship really is?

Think about that for a second. Everyone worships something.

A couple weeks ago during a daddy-daughter date night, I had the privilege of escorting two of the most beautiful princesses to a fine dining establishment…that serves burgers, fries and has a giant star that I think is named “Carl Jr.” Before you knock it, please be sure to consider the clean and elaborate play structure.

Legos are awesome. And by now if you’ve seen the Lego movie, you know that everything is awesome, everything is cool when you’re part of a team.

Building with Lego blocks consumed at least a fourth of my childhood (and probably more of my parent’s lifetime income). While it’s fun to build what the instructions tell you, any Lego Maniac (90’s reference) knows that the real fun comes when you toss the instructions to the side, throw the bird to the man and start building whatever comes to your adolescent mind.
