Thankful Thursday

It's Thankful Thursday once again.

Hebrews 10:24 says... And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works.

Sometimes as a wife and mother we see our tasks as mundane. We tend to see washing dishes, doing laundry, etc as not so important. The truth is we are serving God as we do this. It is part of our work for God. These things are part of our good work.

Coloss 3:23 speaks to servants, and we are all servants of God when we serve and take care of our families. It says...
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men

Ecclesiast. 9:10 says Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might...

I'd like to encourage you. as you do daily chores, do it with a heart focused on God. For you are doing it for him.

In 1st Timothy we are encouraged to "adorn ourselves" with good works.

Psalms 90:17 says And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.

I pray that God will establish the work of my hands, whether giving a hug, or putting on a band-aid, or just mopping the floor. Let us do all for his glory and in his service.

  2. Indeed, I have been trying to do all things with humility and prayer lately. It is amazing what a gift the mundane can then turn into...

  3. So great...and I totally agree!! I LOVE not just being the mom and the wife around here, but also I really do LOVE taking care of the place, it's a gift!!

  4. Lovely post, Tammy! Precious reminder that whatever we do, we are to do it joyfully as unto the Lord. Yes, let us do all for his glory and in his service. Thank God for giving you joy to serve Him at home. Thanks for your visits and lovely comments :) Take care and have a blessed weekend!
