Ever have that kind of start to the week where everything flies at you, all at once?
You kinda just want to say “WHATEVER” and go back to your weekend of barbequed hamburgers, social time, and fun?
We’ve all been there.
But WHATEVER can actually be a positive term. And instead of a total dismissal of interest, it can also mean flexible, open, and willing.
(1) WHATEVER happens, God is in complete control. Surrender all to God—when He’s in control, the pressure’s on Him!
And we know that God causes everything to work together[a] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. – Romans 8:38
(2) WHATEVER one member of the body experiences, the rest of God’s people share in that. We are all in this together, you are never alone!
If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad. –1 Cor 12:26
(3) WHATEVER you do for the least of God’s people, you do for Him. You’re compassion and love for others matters and it’s powerful!
And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’ – Matthew 25:40
You see, “WHATEVER” can actually be a positive thing!
“WHATEVER you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17.
Reflect: What can you do today in word or deed to glorify God that maybe you didn’t do yesterday?
Pray: Ask God to give you strength to do things today, both big and small, in His name and to His glory.
