Drudgery? Those small and tedious tasks, the ones that just need to be done while offering little reward, tend to be boring, innocuous and just plain, down right a drudgery.
Think about it. Your best performance. Think about it, is there some drudgery in every task that ultimately provides the best in training us to be good performers? It appears that this was the lesson Jesus was giving in the manner of life he led while here on earth. Jesus often focused on the tedious, the small and the, well, drudgery to make his point.
God’s Word tells us: “…so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.” (John 13:3-5).
He washed his disciples feet and dried them. This was woman’s work, not becoming the Savior of the world. Yet, he did it gladly. Are you looking for big things to do as a Christian; things that will make a greater impact? Try setting your sights on the things that are drudgery. Unloading the dishwasher makes you an impact player, the only kind that God is really looking to recruit.
We pray. “Father, please give me the courage and confidence to serve others sacrificially. I know You have made me Your child, so please use me as Your child to be a blessing to others. Move me to help others in need. Even if it is drudgery, give me the faith to endue no matter the time or the drudge. In Jesus name. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
