Bringing intent to our rituals gives us the chance to rewire our attitudes. But first we need to see it. (Seth Godin, author and businessman)
We all subscribe to and practice certain ritualistic behaviors, often religious in nature. As Godin seems to suggest, if we’re not careful, those rituals can become merely routines that have lost their significance. We may even forget the truths those religious symbols and rites are to remind us of. An attitude of intentional devotion will bring true meaning to the rituals we practice.
Those who worship worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs (Jonah 2:8).
