Adoration of the Greater
While the Savior declared that not everyone who calls Him “Lord” will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, Paul wrote that not everyone professing to be wise is anything more than foolish. At the First of Romans, that foolishness manifested itself by the worship of idols made to resemble both men and animals. The proper spiritual order of things is for the lesser to worship the Greater. Because God is the Creator of man, God is the Greater, and man is the lesser. In their foolishness, men have worshipped what they created themselves. In so doing, man has given homage to that which is lesser than himself. When a man humbles himself in worship to God, he is blessed in his adoration of the Greater.
