Be serious in church

Ecclesiastes 5:1 NASB
Guard your steps as you go to the house of God
and draw near to listen
rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools;
for they do not know they are doing evil.

Other translations

King James Version
Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.


One’s seriousness in church attracts blessings from God, and one’s seriousness is noted by their readiness to hear the Word of God and to follow instructions in the church.

Being ignorant of the contents of the Bible, and the proceedings in church, will deny you of your blessings.

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Be alert to learn and to do what God has instructed at every service.

Those that complain about a God fearing church may very well be the ones that offer the sacrifice of fools due to their lack of readiness to hear and follow instruction.

Dear friends, don’t allow anybody to distract you during the church service. Prepare to receive all the blessings God has in store for you,

Prayer suggestion

▪︎ Ask God to keep distractions away from you, so you can receive all what He is saying to you, while reading your Bible, and in the church.
