The Best You Can
By Lucia K Haase
“We have the mind of Christ,” Paul said,
to guide our way in what we do…
doing dishes…grocery shopping-
do these things seem mundane to you?
Filing papers, sawing lumber…
whatever it is that you do-
cleaning up after the young ones…
do these things seem mundane to you??
Not when you have a Jesus mind,
to do the best in all you can,
as even ordinary tasks
have lasting value in your plan.
So do the best you can for Jesus
with the mind of Christ and see
how the things you do each day
will bless extraordinarily!
‘For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?
But we have the mind of Christ.’
[1 Corinthians 2:16]
‘And whatever you do, whether in word or deed,
do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through Him.’
