Mere Reflections

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

All the good noble and upright deeds we do are merely a reflection of the truly good, noble and righteous deeds done by our God. Likewise the honorable careers that humans may have on this earth are also reflections of the jobs that God fulfills. He is Sovereign and always working.

   He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
    the sea, and everything in them—
    he remains faithful forever.
 He upholds the cause of the oppressed
    and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
 the Lord gives sight to the blind,
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
    the Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the foreigner
    and sustains the fatherless and the widow,
    but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
Psalm 146:6-9 (emphasis mine)

No job, whether big or little, is seen as unimportant or "too secular" if done for the glory of God. There is no sacred/secular split in His eyes since He is Creator of all things.
