Devotions based on Trevor Hudson’s book, Discovering our Spiritual Identity

It is good to offer up our daily work to God, whether it be preaching a sermon or doing the dishes. “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.” I Cor. 10:31.  The ordinary is made holy when we resolve to do everything for God. Nothing is too trivial or mundane. To do everything for God is to put our whole hearts into what ever we are doing at the present moment. Just imagine the difference it would make in our lives if we lived wholeheartedly. I know so often I am doing one thing but thinking of another… mostly what needs to be done next. That is half- hearted living.   But it is better to concentrate on the task at hand and be fully present. Let us consciously welcome Him into every new activity before we begin it.  I think if we do, we will have a different attitude and we will sense the sacredness of the now-moment . Whenever we find we have disengaged from the present moment we can just ask Him for help to put our preoccupations aside and be present. I want to do this more.
