Yesterday's sermon was about evaluating our time and how we spend it. One of the points was to spend our time wisely by keeping eternity in mind. To make our moments count for eternity.
I'll be honest, one question that came to mind was, "So, how does one make changing diapers, scraping cheerios off of the floor, and keeping up with the many but mundane (and often not so glamorous) tasks in the everyday count for eternity?"
Almost immediately I was reminded of this quote from Dee Breston as she reflected on mothering her own young children.
"I was not wiping bottoms and noses, I was nurturing an eternal soul."Yes! That is how daily diapers, laundry, dishes, dinners, schoolwork and every other mundane task that fills our days so routinely can impact eternity.
Whether it's our children, husbands or just others that surround us in our days...
We have the opportunity, the potential and can in fact be... nurturing eternal souls...
What eternal soul(s) will you have the incredible privilege to nurture today?
