When we believe in Jesus as our Savior, we have the greatest gift in the world living in our hearts! Part of having this gift is remembering that everything we do can be an opportunity to glorify, or praise God.
Mason had just asked Jesus to live in his heart, and his mother asked him to take out the trash. It was his least favorite chore, he hated the stinky garbage! But he remembered the gift of Jesus, who carried all the trash of our sin on the cross, and he bit his lip before he complained. His mom was so grateful, she gave him five extra minutes of screen time for not complaining!
In all of your actions and words you can bring glory to God by doing your very best, loving others, and shining the light of Jesus. Never forget the gift that God gave to all of us in Jesus Christ, and never forget to be thankful for that amazing gift!
“And 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
