Mundane Marvels

II Corinthians 4:18

Matthew 13:34-35

Gardening, fishing, friendship, citizenship, farming, celebrations, weddings, family, architecture, baking, sewing…Some of these are hobbies. Some of them are careers. Others are relationships. All of them are experienced daily by millions of people. They are your everyday mundane type of things.

They are also the basis of parables that Jesus uses to teach his people.

Our savior wants us to be so focused on Him that He chose to teach on the things we do. He knew that in doing this that we would be reminded of Him. He knew that we would grasp the concept if we understood the subject.

Jesus wants us to gain the knowledge He is teaching so that we can apply their realities to our life.

Pray that your eyes will be open to the teachings of Christ all around you. And then allow the Spirit to deal with your heart. You’ll be amazed at what you learn.

Already There

Psalm 139:7

John 4:1-26

The woman was going about her daily chores. She had reached the well to draw water. And on this ordinary day, doing a routine thing, she encountered Jesus.

He offered her living water. She accepted and told people about the connection she had just experienced with the Messiah.

Have you ever been going about your daily business when you encountered God? One in which He spoke to you? Called you out? Offered guidance? Gave you peace and comfort?

Jesus wants to deal with us on a daily basis. He wants to be a part of the seemingly mundane day to day activities. But how often do we actually look for His presence? Seek His guidance? Look for His approval?

Jesus loves meeting us where we are. Be willing to accept his invitation.
