I love Nehemiah 8:6, "And Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground."

We don't often worship God like that (at least I don't). But He is worthy. He deserves that. And so much more. This was such a rebuke to me - that I'm far too often more concerned with what others think than with just loving and knowing and experiencing God. And I miss out on the joy because of that.

I'm not gonna lie... I'm not sure I fully understood the rest of the chapter there but that was a big lesson for me in that one verse. :)
