The Sacredness of the Common

Submitting to God’s work in the commonplace of life recognizes that heart-shaping does not go on and off the clock. God remains attentive to our hearts, to what we are becoming, even if we ourselves are not (nor can we always be)…. If God is always paying attention, there is no room to hide. Those who segment life sometimes do so to avoid dealing with the sacredness of the commonplace.
