“The way you do anything is the way you do everything,” was a phrase I heard this weekend at a training event.
I had to let that sink in.
“The way you do anything is the way you do everything.”
I have this habit of doing “good enough.” Not all the time, but usually around mundane, unrewarding tasks.
If I’m washing the dishes, I’ll wash everything but one pan thinking it’s better than it was.
If I’m walking in the neighborhood, I’ll cut the walk short thinking at least I walked.
If I’m feeding a healthy meal to my family, I’ll include one unhealthy item thinking at least we eat better than most people.
Even as I type I’m realizing how this habit shows up everywhere: marriage, parenting, ministry…I’m really into this good enough thing.
But is God calling me to good enough or best?
Well the Word tells us in Ecclesiaties 9:10, Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.
How might my marriage, ministry, parenting, etc. exceed expectation if I completed the “mundane” tasks associated with each with all my might?!
So this week I vow to do better. Not “good enough” better but “all my might” better.
How does the phrase “the way you do anything is the way your do everything” speak to you? Please comment below.
With God all things are possible,
