1 Corinthians 10:31:

So, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Today, a Tuesday, my usual day off, I will glorify God by redirecting my trust in him from work to rest.  I work by faith in him, I rest by faith in him. 

On this day of rest, by his grace, I will slow down, trusting in his all-sufficiency.  I will pay more attention to my awesome wife, mow the lawn, ignore my mobile phone, and (even maybe!) my e-mail, try (at least) not to fuss in my mind, cook dinner for Hannah, wear jeans, enjoy West Wing series 6, linger over the Bible for an great quiet time, think carefree thoughts all day long – in general, just let the world go by with a Sabbath-faith in God while knowing that tomorrow morning my work will be cheerfully waiting for me, demanding my full attention again, as it should, but none the worse for having had to wait.

It’s Tuesday. I will glorify God.

Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.
