In the book Liturgy of the Ordinary (IVP 2016), Tish Warren writes, “We learn the craft of holiness day by day in the living of a particular life . . . we are part of God’s big vision and mission—the redemption of all things—through the earthy craft of living out our vocation, hour by hour, task by task. I want to do the big work of the kingdom, but I have to learn to live it out in the small tasks before me.” How might this insight change your perspective on the small tasks of your daily life?
