I was busily going about some of the more routine and mundane tasks of cleaning today. I began the day wrangling with my weed eater, then I moved onto cleaning showers and sinks, sweeping and mopping, while along the way, I was stripping beds and washing sheets.
Routine tasks can be mundane. The kind of thing that we take for granted in our everyday lives. That is until we snuggle down into those cool, clean sheets. The exquisite ‘AH’ moment of that experience is one the best ways to end a day.
Proverbs 4:20-22 NLT
“My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.”
Reading our Bible can seem mundane at times, yet it is a routine that will help us in our daily lives. When we routinely read the Bible, we will experience those ‘AH’ moments. Moments that bring us clarity and understanding, knowledge and yes, even wisdom. Words that penetrate deeply into our hearts and make a difference in our lives. Especially when we snuggle down into a particularly exquisite moment of clarity.
Yes, our routine tasks may be mundane, yet they can also become the best part of our day. Reading our Bible, listening to the text with an app, online devotionals, receiving that daily verse via text; these and so many other options are available to us everyday. Mundane and routine maybe, yet very often these moments become the very best part of our day. Mundane tasks can transform into so much more, expecially when we add in the Word.
