Sometimes we hear people talk about the sacred and the secular, the religious and the ordinary. Such terms may be useful in some settings, but what does the word of God teach? When Jesus was making tables and axe handles, did He consider it just ordinary work? When Christians are admonished that whatever they do or say is to be done in the name of the Lord, would that leave room for anything to be considered as "ordinary"? We should all be encouraged to know that whether a Christian is preparing a meal or teaching a Bible class, it is done to the glory of God.
