Word for the day by Christian Education Forum
Vs. 21 and every cooking pot in Jerusalem and Judah
shall be sacred to the Lord of hosts, so that all who sacrifice may come
and use them to boil the flesh of the sacrifice. And there shall no
longer be traders in the house of the Lord of hosts on that day.
In this passage, we read that
even the most common of objects, such as pots, will be holy to the
Lord. The theme of this devotion is a consecrated life, a concept
that seems easy to understand but not as easy to truly live. As I
studied this passage, I began to look at myself and ask - do I actually
live a consecrated life? Is my life truly an example of worship and
This passage made me think about three primary points as I
tried to answer my own questions:
action, even in the most common actions, should be so that we may glorify
the Lord. I should find ways to worship in my everyday
combination of my every day actions makes up my days. And my days
make up my whole life.
• If I find
ways to worship in my every day actions, my life will be an act of
Breaking things down to my
every day actions helps me truly assess how I can do better. I find
that it is easier to ask myself if I truly worship in my every day
actions. I think of my every day interactions with my parents,
siblings, husband, co-workers, and friends, and I see that there are more
and more opportunities for me to truly glorify the Lord. That as I
take every interaction in my life as an opportunity to be more
Christ-like, I am building up to a life of true devotion.
This got me thinking that
even the most mundane or common daily interactions can be an act of
devotion. Do I offer to help others even with the small
things? Do I find ways every day to show how much Christ loves
me? What can I do as I drive to work each morning or in my daily
work meetings? What more can I do each and every day? In each
action - even the small, routine, or mundane - we can each find ways to
glorify the Lord!
Lord, we pray that you help us find ways each and every
day to glorify you in our actions so that our lives may be an example of
true devotion. Amen.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Find ways to glorify the Lord each and every day.
