I thought todays Word of the Day from Dictionary.com was worth making note of for future reference. It’s an interesting one!
[b]genuflect[/b] JEN-yuh-flekt, intransitive verb:
1. To bend the knee or touch one knee to the ground, as in worship.
2. To be servilely respectful or obedient; to grovel.
I think it ties obedience and worship together quite nicely. Ponder on it for a while.
