_Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God_.–I COR. x. 31.
With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not unto men.–EPH. vi. 7.

A Servant, with this clause, Makes drudgery divine: Who sweeps a room, as for Thy laws, Makes that and th’ action fine.
G. HERBERT.
Surely the truth must be, that whatsoever in our daily life is lawful and right for us to be engaged in, is in itself a part of our obedience to God; a part, that is, of our very religion. Whensoever we hear people complaining of obstructions and hindrances put by the duties of life in the way of devoting themselves to God, we may be sure they are under some false view or other. They do not look upon their daily work as the task God has set them, and as obedience due to Him. We may go farther; and say, not only that the duties of life, be they never so toilsome and distracting, are no obstructions to a life of any degree of inward holiness; but that they are even direct means, when rightly used, to promote our sanctification.
H. E. MANNING.

Verse of the Day

For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. — Romans 13:6-7 (NKJV)
