How do you define your day? In terms of what you do materially or spiritually?
As a child of God, the most important events of your day are the spiritual qualities of God you express. The love you share, the truth you know, the kindness you give, the wisdom you act on, and the God you reflect, are the most notable and significant accomplishments. The good they produce stick and have a long-lasting impact on your well-being and upon those around you.
Every day brings along with it certain demands that cannot be avoided, like driving to work, answering the phone, doing the dishes, feeding the children and paying the bills. These jobs need to be done, but how you do them makes all the difference as to how joyous your day will be.
Do you drive to work with a heart overflowing with gratitude that you have a job? Do you answer the phone with an eager expectation that you can help someone in need? Do you clean the dishes with gratitude that your family had a meal to eat and that you have the strength and energy necessary to keep a tidy home? And the list could go on with all the different ways God can be expressed in everything you do.
What you feel and express spiritually turns the mundane into the glorious. Life is not humdrum, boring or routine when lived at a spiritual level. It is inspired.
Let your life be defined by what you accomplish spiritually, rather than in terms of a list of tasks you check off each day. Life at its best is not a matter event, but a Spirit event.
Enjoy being a Spirit-event today!
