We all need reminding that God is not absent from the seemingly insignificant details of life. Today we live with a false separation between sacred and secular that was never meant to be. Work, paying bills, changing diapers . . . when Jesus enters any situation He makes even the most mundane things extraordinary.
Boring enlivens this truth as author Michael Kelley uses the narrative of Saul\'s rise to kingship in the Old Testament to make his fine point: we can give ourselves to ordinary life -- parenting, marriage, work, etc. – because we fully believe in God\'s presence and power within those situations. They are no longer boring but important.
See every relationship, every act of kindness, and every moment for what it is: a part of God\'s exciting plan for your life.
