“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1Corinthians 10:31).
Do you sometimes wonder if your life is making a difference? After all, it’s filled with routine activities. Nobody’s looking. Nobody’s clapping. Right?
When an audience is clapping, it’s easy to feel that one’s work has significance, but what happens when the stage is bare…the crowds are gone? The Gaithers, who for over four decades have brought heartfelt music to many large audiences continue the song, “when no one else is watching me, I need You more than words can say; tomorrow’s such a daily day…”
How do you serve the Lord when it’s such an ordinary day?
When my stage is bare, I remind myself that God is looking for faithfulness in “whatever my hand finds to do” (Ecclesiastes 9:10).
I want to do everything whole-heartedly as unto the Lord, whether it’s gardening, speaking with a neighbor over the fence, teaching a Sunday School class, knitting an afghan, entertaining company…I want to be faithful even when nobody is looking.
There is no such thing as insignificant work when it’s done for the Lord.
God is looking for faithful obedience in all of life.
Father, thank you that you are orchestrating my life. I want every day to be to your glory and for the benefit of others.
Question: Can you sanctify this day by doing “everything your hand finds to do” wholeheartedly as unto God?
