Cleaning my comb yester morning, I realized how I really wanted each “stick” to be clean, frsh and ‘healthy’. This was because I wanted it to be very efficient while combing my hair, doing a neat, clean job, and at the same time looking good while doing it (yellow is a bad color when others see dirt on it, you know!)
I think that that’s how God cares about us and our fulfillment of His purpose. He wants us looking good, inside and out, so we can be efficient and effective as we serve His purpose for our lives, and also so that we can look good serving Him. Sometimes we think, “ah, just get the job done,” but God cares that the ones doing the job – His very own workmanship – look good while at it – it’s good publicity for Him (evangelism, and for His glory.)
God cares about our needs and our details…even more than we do.
Look at the birds of the air, they neither sow nor reap, but your heavenly Father feeds them…..are you not of much more value than they??
