whatever you do

Okay, so, I'm kind of late with this, but here is today's and tomorrow's verse:
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. 
-Collosians 3:17

So have you noticed that this verse, and the last two, have all had the phrase 'whatever you do'?
Now I don't know if I really need to clarify on this or not, but I will. :)

When it says 'whatever you do' that really does mean, 'whatever you do.' When you're washing dishes? Do it to the glory of God, or  'in the name the Lord Jesus'. Okay, now you're probably thinking, "How on earth am I supposed to wash dishes to the glory of God? What am I supposed to do, sing gospel songs?" Well, I mean, you could sing gospel songs whilst scrubbing away...but that's not my point. My point is, do it in a way that would glorify the Lord. Let's say there's a National Dish Washing Competition. With every dish you wash, you want it to be known that you serve the Lord, you are God's daughter. And this doesn't just apply to washing the dishes. When you're doing math? Do it to glorify the Lord, and as Collosians 3:23 says, 'work at it with all your heart.' When you're talking to your friend, or your little brother, or anybody, do it all 'in the name of the Lord Jesus!'

Okay, I know I just posted this, but it goes so well with this post!

Have a great evening girls, I'll be praying for you!

  1. That is like my little sisters FAVORITE song and music video. But it does have a good message. So that means that I need to be happy(not grumbling) while washing dishes. *Sigh* it seems impossible. But that verse is a great verse! And I can definitely improve on my cheerfulness sometimes.
