Do Everything!


Does work matter to God? I think, yes. In what way?

Sometimes I get the impression, from counsels, sermons & chats, that work matters to God when it serves as a tool for evangelism. Or it matters to God the most when it serves as such a tool. Or it matters to God only to the extent it serves as such a tool. In other words, its value depends on — whether to some extent, primarily or solely — its effectiveness as an instrument of evangelism.

How about this alternative from Steven Curtis Chapman?

You’re picking up toys on the living room floor
For the 15th time today
Matching up socks and sweeping up lost
Cheerios that got away
You put a baby on your hip and color on your lips
And head out the door
And while I may not know you I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes does it matter at all
Well let me remind you it all matters just as long as you

Do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
‘Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do
Oooh ooooh oooooh
