Reverencing the Things of the Lord

Leviticus 26 lays out various laws and the Lord’s response to Israel’s obedience to those laws and His response to their disobedience. After stating the first thing of not worshiping idols, He then said, ” You shall keep My Sabbaths and reverence My sanctuary: I am the LORD” (Leviticus 26:2).
He wanted Israel to rest one day a week and to worship Him on that day. Part of that worship were the activities of the sanctuary. Therefore, He wanted them to reverence His sanctuary. He topped those two things by reminding them, “I am the LORD.”
Do not keep the holy days of idols and do not fear their places of worship, but remember that Yahweh of Israel is the Lord above all.
Do you think that way? Do you reverence the things of the Lord?
