Have you ever wondered if there was a limit to how much skill you implement in a song?

It might seem like there is an obvious answer, but there really isn’t. There are two major ‘schools of thought’ here, and are as follows.

1. You want your worship to be your best. That means you practice like crazy, and you play on Sundays even better. You make every note count because hey, this is your offering.

2. It isn’t all about the music. As long as your heart is in the right place, then the worship is fine.

Both of these are valid, and I suggest blending these together. You do want your offering to be its best, but you can’t beat up on yourself if you miss a note or come in late. Doing that will only distract you from the real goal, which is to simply worship. You are indeed leading others into that state, so consistency in your music is very important, but you can’t hope to lead unless you yourself are also worshipping.

There are plenty more thoughts to accompany these few, but the basic idea is that you need to excersise skill as well as attitude when you get up there on Sunday morning. Remember that nobody is at the same level as you. Offer up your best, and view it as an offering that is above yourself.
