Mama, Feel the Need to Sort the Sacred from the Secular?

The Sacred and The Secular

It is common in our Christian culture for a woman to be busy at home, yet still be thinking she is not doing enough to serve the Lord. Maybe she has a need to sort the sacred from the secular. What’s a mama to do?

The Sacred and The Secular

Not too long ago I had the honor of hearing a lovely friend speak at an event. As usual, I went home encouraged and knowing more about how good our God is.

She shared an excerpt from The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer, reminding us that there is no difference between the sacred and the secular.

No Common Acts

You probably know 1 Corinthians 10:31. As the sanctified, you and I have no common acts, but rather a command that all acts should be done to the glory of God…

For me, it’s one of those lessons that I need to repeat often. It is my nature to diminish the everyday tasks as menial in comparison to all the other things I could be doing!

These are the tasks that our good Father has given to me. Recognizing that has given me such freedom to serve Him wholeheartedly in all things.

Some things I share here might be rich spiritual lessons that the Lord has been revealing to me in my own life.

Others, I will point out, might be seemingly “everyday” matters. No verses on how to use Excel spreadsheets to maximize the efficiency of your uber spiritual day. No deep truths related to remembering to clip your children’s long, dirty fingernails before going into public.

These are all worship. Just different presentations…

So, listen Mama, if you are struggling with the same sort of thing, subscribe and stick with us. We can walk this out together.


Whatever the tasks that you are called to, I hope you find encouragement here, friend!

Have you ever found yourself trying to sort the sacred from the secular?
