I always dream big in the New Year, and in my best years dream big about how I could serve God- like…. let’s pack up the family and spend a year traveling and serving to help others and teach our children that there is nothing more important that what we give. Or this will be the year I write the book that inspires people to find their hope in God alone.
That’s all cool stuff. That’s all stuff I dream of doing, and hope to one day. But that’s not today.
Today I’m at work, then heading home to play with my kids and make sure baths and homework and more is done. I’ll need to fold some laundry, pick up toys, possibly even cook.
So today isn’t the day I do works in His name to show others His love. But of course it is! Or it can be. Colossians 3:23 says Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. My friend Diane never forgot that whatever she did could be an act of worship if done with the right attitude. She told friends to light a candle while doing household chores as a reminder that they were serving their family and so serving God by taking care of showing them love. She turned the ordinary into worship, simply by it being that in her own heart.
So today I’m reminded, to do whatever I do knowing that where I am is where I serve today.
