Wednesday Wisdom No. 29

slipping through your fingers

"Excellence requires caring about someone or something enough to invest time, effort, and skill into it, with God's glory and our neighbor's good as the goal.  Biblically defined, true excellence has others in mind―first God, and then our neighbor.  'So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God' (1 Cor. 10:31).  Eating and drinking are fairly common aspects of daily life, and yet even ordinary meals become significant when they draw our attention once again to glorifying and enjoying the God who provides them.” 
~ Michael Horton, Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World
