Give God Your Ordinary, Everyday Life

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you:
Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating,
going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God
as an offering. Embracing what God does for you
is the best thing you can do for him.

So often we think our lives won’t matter unless we do big things. Then we think we really would have something to show for ourselves. But God is asking us to give him what we already are doing. He works with simple, normal, and common stuff. He wants us like we are. We can present our everyday lives as our offering to him. Offering our best every day is the best we can give.

As we give our every day lives to God, and as we let him guide us on that journey, he will raise us to new levels of maturity and give us fulfilled lives. That will transform us to become more like him.

See, it’s within reach. Everyone can do this.
