This article is not meant to condemn. I’m as guilty as anyone else is on this subject. It’s just meant to be a reminder on what worship is really about. Worshipping God is not about us.

I became pretty critical of worship music over time. And at my current position at my church, we’re asked to be critical of ourselves. We are always wanting to get better, so sometimes it’s hard not to dissect a worship service.

Let’s try not to be so critical of worship teams and how they sound or what songs they picked. Let’s focus on worshiping God.
