hardwork is the highest form of worship?Explain


1. The word 'worship' originally meant 'honour' shown to something. Action is a better way to honour anything or anybody, than mere words
2. One can always go back on one's words, one can renege on one's promises - however, actual work is a lasting proof of one's commitment 
3. Hard work requires concentration and devotion, which are foundational for any kind of worship
4. In the words of the Bhagavad Gita: "Karmanye vadhikaraste Ma Phaleshu Kadachana, Ma Karmaphalaheturbhurma Te Sangostvakarmani"
(Chapter 2 Verse 47). It means: "one has the right only to work, but not to its fruits. one should not be motivated by results of action, nor should they fall prey to inaction". In other words, unmotivated hard work is the perfect form of worship that is humanly achievable.

When Christians think of worship, images of the Sunday morning worship service come to view, with singing, praying, giving, preaching, and sharing the sacrament.

Study is perhaps something that is done in preparation for worship, but could Christians ever conceive of study, itself, as an act of worship, even the highest form of worship? When we analyze this concept, however, we begin to understand that intensive study of the Word of God is the most reliable way in which God can speak to us and cause us to understand his will and his ways.
