A.W. Tozer describes the impact of the Fall on worship in a poetic and poignant way: "Man was made to worship God. God gave to man a harp and said, 'Here above all the creatures that I have made and created I have given you the largest harp. I put more strings on your instrument and I have given you a wider range than I have given to any other creature. You can worship Me in a manner that no other creature can.' And when he sinned, man took that instrument and threw it down in the mud and there it was lain for centuries, rusted, broken, unstrung."
