Romans 12:10-12

"Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;"
Romans 12:10-12

Today this struck me I think because of the "not slothful in business" part.  I think sometimes mentally we have this division in our minds about what is God's realm and what is the rest of life, and business doesn't really seem like the God part, you know?  Of course ALL things are God's and we have to adjust to thinking about God and being directed by him wherever we are... and so maybe this helps with that, because all of these things are things that we should be doing today, right now... not on a Sunday or a religious holiday.  When we go to work or school or run errands today, let's be kindly affectioned one to another.  We can serve the Lord by doing whatever we do that is good with fervency and dedication, keeping the spirit with us.  We can rejoice in hope and be patient in tribulation with work things, or school things, or family things, or Walmart things. :)  And definitely we can continue instant in prayer with all of it.  Might even make things better. :)
Today, let's include God in our lives... every part of them, and every minute of them.
