We can look upon everything we do, no matter how seemingly insignificant, as a gift to the Lord. If we hoe the garden carefully so that our family — or a neighbor’s family, or someone in need — can have fresh vegetables for dinner, that is an offering to the Lord. If we work a little more than is expected of us at something that benefits others, that too is an offering to the Lord. Everywhere, in every detail of daily living, it is not a question of quantity or expense that makes our offering acceptable; it is cheerfulness, enthusiasm, and the capacity to forget ourselves in helping others.
