Answer: He Instructs Devotees to Worship Deities

The Supreme Lord instructs us as follows in the Srimad Bhagavatam:

"The devotee should regularly see My statues in the temple, touch My lotus feet and offer worshipable paraphernalia and prayer. He should see in the spirit of renunciation, from the mode of goodness, and see every living entity as spiritual."
--SB 3.29.16
