I read an article a few months back, from Disciple Blog, about teaching children about worship. It brought up a topic of interest – entertainment.
Children wonder, “Why bother with worship?” Many kids understand very little about the purpose of worship. During worship services they often center on themselves, bore easily, and expect to be “entertained.” Kids lose sight of the fact that God is the primary audience who deserves their praise!
This makes me think of the “Are you not entertained?” scene from Gladiator.
I do not think this problem of wanting to be entertained in church is limited to children. I think the idea is rampant in adults as well. Is church for our entertainment?
