Paying Attention

“Paying attention to God in the actual routines of life is the heart of discipleship” -Todd D. Hunter. “Christianity Beyond Belief.”

Apprenticeship to Jesus is learning to see and do what God is doing in the regular, mundane moments of life. God infuses his world with his presence, wherever we play, work, and live.

My workplace is no longer just where I work. It’s a place where I can cooperate with God’s activity in the lives of my co-workers. 

The coffee shop is no longer just a place to relax and hang out. It’s a place where God is at work and where I can join him in that endeavor.

My hobby is no longer just something I like to do. It’s an activity in and through which I can join God in creative goodness for the sake of others.
