Ordinary, Everyday Life

It is the desire of my heart to love God. And there is no other place where I can learn to do this except in my ordinary, everyday life. - Elisabeth Elliot

If the Lord of Glory took a towel and knelt on the floor to wash the feet of His disciples, than no work...is demeaning. To offer it up to the Lord of Glory transforms it into a holy task. Could it be right to turn from so much that might be of profit and become just nursemaids? The answer was yes. It is not the business of the servant to decide which work is great, which is small, which important or unimportant - he is not greater than his master. - Amy Carmichael
