I will not deny the fact that I was totally in awe of the cathedrals in Europe. They were magnificent. They were so very old. They were gorgeous. They were filled with the music of ages past, played by the masters who created the music. They were filled with statues of saints and tombs of great leaders.
But when I sang the song "Glory to God" with the choir in the different cathedrals and church's - even though I reveled in the beauty around me and the sound that carried up to the rafters - my thoughts were on the One who I was praising in the song.
It is so easy to get carried away in the history and the magnificence of the buildings we were in and focus on the idols and obscene wealth within each of the buildings and start worshiping the beauty itself.
But I am thankful and grateful to the God to whom those buildings were built - the One who made it possible for us to travel safely and see these wonders, the One who is my Lord and Savior.
And for that I am forever in His debt.
