J.R. Miller On Everyday Task

“There is no other way in which one's life will so surely and so quickly become transfigured — as in the faithful, happy, cheerful doing of everyday tasks. We need to remember that this world is not so much a place for doing things — as for making character. Household life is not primarily a sphere for good cooking, tidy keeping of things, thorough sweeping and dusting, careful nursing and training of children, hospitable entertainment of friends, and the thousand things that must be done each day. Home is a sphere for transforming souls into radiant beauty. But we must take heed always that we do our tasks, whatever they are, with love. Doing any kind of work unwillingly, fretfully, with complaint and murmuring, hurts the life.”

J.R. Miller

Daily I am very blessed and encouraged by quotes that Brother Tony Konvalin post on his website What They Said. You can subscribe by email and they will be delivered to your in box each morning to encourage and challenge you as well. :-)
