(5:1 in some versions)
17 (5:1) Watch your step when you go to the house of God. Offering to listen is better than fools offering sacrifices, because they don’t discern whether or not they are doing evil.
When we gather as a group of believers it is not the time to catch up on a week’s worth of news but to set aside the dirt of this world and praise God. Playing at worship, making a big scene, is evil, and worse deciving to the individual and others. Remember with God in our lives He is sovereign, we are to approach Him meekly and contritely, because it is only by the sacrifice of Yeshua that we are even there at all.
