Robert W. Herron once wrote that “good listening is like tuning in a radio station. For good results, you can listen to only one station at a time.”
Ever find yourself traveling and driving out of a station’s range? The next thing you know, you are hearing static, plus another station trying to come in. It’s very annoying and distracting.
Worship is like that. To get the most from worship we must “tune in to God.” And tune out distractions and outside interferences.
Each of us must “consider one another” and do our best to make it easy for others around us to worship. Not talking, or gawking. Controlling our children and teaching them reverence in respect in worship. Eliminating unnecessary trips out of the assembly. And quietly focusing on the moment. All of these will help.
But ultimately it is our own personal responsibility to “tune in” to God and “tune out” the interferences. Get on the right station., clearly tune in to the right frequency, and worship will be a wonderful delight.
