There’s a guy who used to work at the Good Will by my house named Kyle. I don’t know if he’s a Christian or not, but I suspect he is. Every time I drop stuff off there he always has a big smile on his face. Even when things get crazy and cluttered, Kyle doesn’t seem to mind. No matter how busy he is, he always makes time to stop what he’s doing to talk with you, ask about your day and what he can do to help.
Some of the other guys who work with Kyle don’t have the same attitude. When I approach them, I feel like and inconvenience. They never smile, rarely look up from what they’re doing to acknowledge my presence and seem to do the bare minimum to get by.
In 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NLT) the Apostle Paul writes, “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
What Paul is saying here is we should do everything in a way that honors God. It’s not just what we do, but how we do it and why we do it.
Kyle honors Good Will not only in what he does but in how, and I suspect, why he does it. His co-workers…not so much.
Today, let’s strive to be more like Kyle. As you go about your day, keep this question in the back of your mind: “How can I honor God in this situation?”
Honoring God every day means honoring him in the everyday.
