I found this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson (whom, incidentally, I hated studying in college Early American Lit class), and found it to be rather provocative, and telling:
A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming.
I think it is very true, from both a Christian perspective and a "worldy" one.. both for what happens in our homes or public life (our "work" area) as well as our inner workings. Definitely something to think about, eh?
