Have you ever been in a situation where you were asked to do, what seemed to you, a petty job? Perhaps your boss at work asked you to clean out a messy drawer in a filing cabinet. Or at a family dinner you found yourself asked to peel 20 pounds of potatoes.
Although seemingly unimportant tasks, have you ever considered that the ground on which you stand while doing them is holy ground? It is holy ground because God sent you there.
Think of other holy ground on which you walk - through the aisles of a grocery store, at the folding table in the laundromat, in a rocking chair with an ill child, at the bedside of a loved one.
The ground where we stand is truly holy ground in God’s eyes. As we are faithful in doing what He gives us to do, big or small, we ourselves become holy.
The place whereon thou standest is holy ground. Exodus 3:5
Holy Father, please guide my steps to Your purposes. Let me honor those tasks You’ve given me, no matter how small. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
