Less is More: Homage to the Son

"Do homage to the Son..." Psalm 2:12

Homage means to kiss. However in practice, it was a promise, with a ceremonial acknowledgement, by a vassal of allegiance to his lord, who then kissed the vassal after his declaration. When directed towards the Lord, homage is a reverential worship and expression of devout affection. A vassal is one who has been given a territory of land in exchange for his allegiance and usually military services. 
May we recognize that all we have and all we own, belongs to the Lord. May we pay homage to Him and sincerely express an allegiance to Him!
At times we collect and pile stuff around us thinking that ownership of all this stuff will somehow bring us satisfaction. The truth is, when we give all that we have to the Lord, recognizing it really is all His anyway, and commit ourselves to following His ways with all that He entrusts to us, then peace will flood our souls like nothing else can. 
May we acknowledge the Lord in all our ways, trusting in Him with fear and honor, receiving His healing and refreshment as a result! Proverbs 3:5-8
We don't need to try and build a kingdom for ourselves. As believers in Jesus Christ, we are a part of a greater kingdom--an eternal kingdom--not made with hands. When you feel dissatisfied with what's around you--whether clutter or lack--then look to the Son and pay homage to Him. Ask Him to show you His kingdom and your place in it. Seeing the glory of His kingdom will satisfy you more than any earthly thing ever could!
