WE ARE CALLED by God to live this life with love for everyone. All that we do can be an expression of God’s love. However mundane the task, perform it with a generous spirit and grateful heart. The most insignificant task performed with love is tribute to God, and every act of charity or service done for self-gain or with hate—or worse, indifference—is a hollow offering to God.
—Christopher Maricle, The Jesus Priorities: 8 Essential Habits (Upper Room Books, 2007)
