Gloriously Ordinary

College life sometimes seems like four years of doing the same small things over and over.

But here's a thought: Did you know God's glory shines brightest in the small things?

Give Him a rich man, a strong man, a throne, or an alabaster box, and it must be broken to bring forth His glory to the fullest. But give God a shepherd boy, a carpenter, a fisherman, five loaves and two fish—His glory is blinding!

It is, I think, one of my favorite things about God’s glory that Christ traded a chariot for a donkey, a carpenter’s shop for a cross.

Folks, it's the little things. Relish those daily tasks He's given you in your work place, your classroom, your friendships, and your home–use them to their fullest potential. And don't forget! God does glorious things with the ordinary.

“That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” (I Corinthians 2:5).
