We would all like to make our own crosses; but since our Lord did not make his own, neither do we make ours. We can take whatever he give us, and we can make the supernatural best of it. The typist at the desk working on routine letters… the student with his books, the sick in their isolation and pain, the teacher drilling her pupils, the mother dressing the children – every such task, every such duty, can be ennobled and spiritualized if it is done in God’s name.
Lift Up Your Heart
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17
