You are not a celebrity, part of the rich and famous, or have 50,000 followers on Twitter. You are just an ordinary person doing the best you can to care for your family, be neighborly, be a good employee, act as responsibly as you can, live faithfully and find happiness along the way. Being ordinary is not something to be disparaged. On the contrary, it is a gift from God. And it is in the midst of your ordinary life that you discover the extraordinary day-in and day-out reality of being surrounded by God’s grace, being loved by Jesus and loving Jesus, and being led by the Holy Spirit into the heart of God. So don’t just see today as a series of tasks to be accomplished – experience the joy of the Lord in everything you do.
