I’m not sure that you know this, but Central Valley hosts a Ladies’ Connect Group via Zoom on Wednesday nights at 6:00.
Last night, when we were discussing Romans 12, one of our ladies brought up an interesting story she’d heard about a florist.
The florist said that she felt so unimportant at times. She wasn’t a doctor, who cured diseases. She wasn’t a lawyer, who helped others receive justice. She was a florist. How could a florist be someone important?
But because of her work, a grieving family received some comfort seeing an array of flowers at their loved one’s grave.
A man offered up roses to his intended when he proposed.
One friend may have sent flowers to another friend, to apologize for a wrong.
Flowers cheer up a gloomy hospital room.
What about you?
Do you ever feel unimportant in serving God?
Maybe you’re changing diapers, doing laundry, being a caregiver, preparing meals. Maybe you’re cleaning the same floors in your home week by week. Or unloading the dishwasher–again.
God tells us in Romans 12:4-8 that all our gifts have value. They, in fact, glorify God! (I Peter 4:10-11)
So whatever your hands find to do, the Bible tells us to “work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” (Colossians 3:23-24)
Even if you’re a florist.
