Work hard and with gladness at all times, as though working for Christ, doing the will of God with all your heart.

Ephesians 6:7

Is it possible to face the tasks of the day with a positive point of view? Can we follow Paul's admonition in Colossians 3:23- "Whatsoever you do, do it whole heartedly, as to the Lord, and not unto men?" It is possible to sacramentalize our daily routine. I can hang this verse over the kitchen sink, the work bench, or the desk-and discover the difference attitude can make toward the daily tasks that can so easily become drudgery. If we make Jesus our boss instead of the sink, or desk-we will discover that the routine can become rich in texture as we seek to glorify Him, no matter how mundane the task.
