I find it interesting how simple yet complicated the Scriptures make the Christian life. For example: Love. Simple. Who? Neighbors, other Christians, enemies…everyone. Ouch! The same is true of Randy Kilgore’s summary paralleling 1Corinthians 10:31, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
When we finally realize that it is God’s work that makes our work significant, we face the good news and the bad news. Good news: It’s the state of our heart that matters to God. Bad news: It’s the state of our heart that matters to God. When we desire to please Him, He uses the little things we do in big ways. This, however, foils our attempts to cover our lack of devotion with sacrifice or some showy service. He sees past the show. He goes straight to the heart of the matter–your heart (and mine).
How is your work today? How is your heart?
