WITH God: Even in the Mundane

Quick!  Make a short mental list of all the boring and mundane activities you do every week.

Here's mine: dishes, driving, email, mowing, taking out garbage, paying bills, scheduling staff, entering info into a database, cleaning

Go ahead and think of yours.  (No really, do it!)

Now read Genesis 21:22-34.

Funny story right?  It's actually pretty boring if you ask me.  Abraham gets in an argument with Abimelech and it gets resolved.  But look at these verses that bookend that passage of scripture.

Verse 22: At that time Abimelech and Phicol, the commander of his army, said to Abraham, “God is with you in all that you do." 

Verse 33: Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beer Sheba. There he worshiped the Lord, the eternal God.

In verse 22 he gets told that God is with him.  And the story ends with him worshiping the Lord.  If Abraham can walk WITH God through a boring time in his life, you can walk with God through any mundane activity.  Even those activities in that list you just made.  Walk WITH God even in the boring moments of your life!
