I'm reading Passionate Housewives Desperate for God, a Christmas gift from my parents. This morning, chapter 3 began with this from Martin Luther:
"What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow."
Anyone else need that reminder? It is so easy to get caught up in the daily routine, to be weighed down with guilt over what is not accomplished and what schedule is not kept, rather than rejoicing in God's calling and His view of my work.
Whatever I can accomplish in one day, may I do it "as unto the Lord."
