Nice Building

From a friends daily devotional:

Lamentations 2:7

The Lord has rejected His altar, He has abandoned His sanctuary; He has delivered into the hand of the enemy The walls of her palaces. They have made a noise in the house of the LORD As in the day of an appointed feast.

Our place of worship is not as important to God as our pattern of worship. A church building may be beautiful, but if its people don’t sincerely follow God, the church will decay from within. The people of Judah, despite their beautiful temple, had rejected in their daily lives what they proclaimed in three worship rituals.
