Worship in Our Daily Lives

I will say it again……

I love blogging and bringing different scenarios into the fro from the Bible.

As many have said.. there are so many different versions from so many different translations and so much has got muddled up over the long lost years………
but at the end of the day, the most important thing to me is that we Believe and have a common goal! 

Our Lord loves us and He doesn’t need anything – it is us who need Him in our lives! 

For those of us who love Him, Look at the ways we unintentionally without
even thinking about what we are doing, worship him!

              

Have you noticed how some activities you do seem a lot more spiritual – more sacred – than others?  Singing hymms, teaching church school, workng in a soup kithen or preparing a care basket for a sick friend – all of these seem more exalted than other activities.  Even something as common as a hoiday family gathering seems … almost sacred.
What about when you drive to the service station to fill your tank with petrol?  Or when you cound out coupons to the teller at the supermarket?  Or while you are waiting for the salesman/woman to wrap your purchases? (Most of the time, we do it ourselves nowdays). Those activities seem far from spiritual and anything but sacred… right?  I mean –it’s just everyday ‘stuff’.
We do it all the time – separate ‘religious’ activities into one group and ‘regular’ activities into another group.   Moses says, (Old Testament again) ‘Do not steal, yet the verse next to this states, “Do not go over your vine-yard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave then for the poor and the alien.  (Almost a contradiction – is the stranger not stealing?, ‘do not take what is not yours’).
Again he says in another verse, “Do not seek revenge …… but love your neighbour as yourself”.
Why didn’t Moses simply group together all the spiritual activities and leave the rest of these non-essential, non-spiritual ‘things’ for another time, other than the Book of Leviticus in the Bible?  Well, it’s no mistake that God spoke all these commands in one breath, mingling ‘spiritual’ and ‘nonspiritual’.
God is telling his people what he expects of them in their worship.  God wants his people to understand that life is spiritualall of life’s activities come under His Domain.  How we plow our fields or how we shop at the market.  How we talk to a service station attendant.  Everything we do can be a way of worshiping Him.
Think about that the next time you wash your dishes ~ (Big smile…;)  By washing them properly, you are doing your best and in a way, worshiping!

Inspiration from the Book of Leviticus (NIV)

    I agree Debra. All our actions are sacred…each breath, each moment, a miracle. If we can live in the now, we'd see the Divine in all we do. It's just that sometimes letting go of the chatter in our heads is so darn hard! Thanks for another thought provoking post' 🙂

    I don't always think about the small things this way, but it's definitely true. Some of the most simple acts of service are amazing acts of worship!

    Chop wood, carry water.Finding the spiritual in the seemingly mundane is so important.(And a "pillar" of Quaker faith I should add! )

  4. n0eLLe says:

    You're right, everything is kinda spiritual and we should think more carefully about this (yes, even while washing the dishes!)

  5. I love the idea of doing everything with God in mind… makes you always want to do your best- even in the small things!

    We all start somewhere…. and it doesn't matter what the priority is, so long as we start 🙂
