Everything We Do

“Abraham expressed his faith by packing his bags and moving. David administered a kingdom. Jesus pounded nails on a carpenter’s bench. Paul made friends, sewed tents, planned journeys, and raised funds for the poor in Jerusalem. Through such ordinary deeds the kingdom of God advanced. What they did mattered less than why and for whom. In creation, in incarnation, in all acts on earth, God hallows the ordinary.”     Philip Yancey *

Every day we make choices:
     to work diligently or lazily
     to be considerate or rude
     to neglect or nourish our relationship with the Lord
     to excuse or repent of our sins

You might have influence over hundreds of employees or two toddlers. You may decide how your company spends $2,000,000 or how your family spends $20.

“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord” because God cares about the ordinary and extraordinary duties of our lives. (Colossians 3:23).
