Do Something that Matters

by Ashley Jensen in Blog, Christianity, LIFE
Even in the mundane, maybe especially in the mundane, what we do matters.

Doing something that matters is a concept that stirs in the heart of every person. But “what matters” is a subject of relativity. What matters to you may not matter to me and what matters to me, frankly, you possibly couldn’t give a rip about. I’ve often felt like things I do don’t matter. Some days I look at what I’ve done and think, “Did that really matter? Did what I do today actually make a difference?”

Yeah, I checked off my to-do list and there’s a certain sense of accomplishment but did it matter? Again relativity comes into the picture. I fed the cat, that mattered to the fluff ball. I encouraged a friend, that mattered to them. I think at some level, everything we do matters. It certainly matters to God.

“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,” -Colossians 3:23 NKJ

My opinion is that whatever we do, whatever we think, however our attitudes are… it all matters. I have not even come close to mastering this. I still get some fulfillment out of what I do, but I’m learning that my source of fulfillment is in who God created me to be.

In closing, do something that matters today but do it out of who you are not to build your sense of self-worth. Everything matters.

Have you found yourself feeling like what you do doesn’t matter?
