“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 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 * kingdom

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

“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).
