Why does God require worship?

Many Christians often wonder why God commands us to praise and worship Him. Sceptics go a step further in saying that God is egotistical or vain and that is the basis for why He requires worship. Although this is a very common misconception both within and outside Christian circles, it is important to understand that a god who is narcissistic and self-absorbed is not the God of the Bible, and not the God whom we worship.   The first point that I would like to address is that God did create us to worship Him. There are multiple places in scripture where we are commanded to express our gratitude and thanks to God. However, where we make a mistake is in likening God to sinful man. Let’s take a look at this passage in Isaiah: 8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,     neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,     so are my ways higher than your ways     and my thoughts than your thoughts.
