Hindsight is sometimes better than foresight. In hindsight, we have an opportunity to examine the past and determine how the actions we took relate to our current circumstances. We also can determine what, if any, changes we wish to implement. We never have that opportunity when dealing with foresight. Foresight requires that we analyze the circumstances and make fully informed decisions that we hope will yield sustainable solutions. It also requires that we examine our motivations in order to ensure that they do not exert a corrupting influence on the decision-making process. In the context of worship, both hindsight and foresight are operative. We must examine our past methodologies, determine what if any changes must be implemented to achieve the results we seek, and examine our motivation for engaging in worship. If our goal is not to help establish the kingdom of God in the earth, our worship is in vain (2 Peter 2; Matthew 15:1-9).
