Cosmic Vending Machine

People often attend church, give, serve, and worship based on what they get out of the experience, hoping that their return on investment is appropriate to their level of commitment. This type of self-focused religion reduces God to a cosmic vending machine. What he offers is so much more satisfying and profound, a life that appropriately places God at the center and offers him the very best of all that we have as an act of worship for all that he has done for us.
