Eternal Impact in the Everyday Mundane with Kelly Crawford
We are a culture that seeks out the extraordinary, the big accomplishments in life. In today’s podcast, Kelly Crawford shares the truth that the every day, small, mundane things done for the glory of God have eternal impact. We can be confident that according to God’s Word our faithfulness in the little things adds up to living a big life.
Christians are often encouraged to “Do something big for Jesus,” but it’s Jesus Himself that reminds us to be faithful in the little things, and to make it our ambition to lead a quiet life, minding our own business and working with our hands. This Biblical message is completely counter-cultural, as Biblical truths often are. And, this is one podcast episode you’ll want to listen to again and again.

Kelly worries so much about what the world thinks. Who cares whether others value our work or not? Kelly always seems so troubled by what other things–do they approve of my large family, do they approve of homeschooling, etc. it goes on and on. “We’re a culture that doesn’t really celebrate the mundane.” Why does she need the culture to celebrate her?
I’m not certain that Kelly worries about what the world thinks. And probably doesn’t care whether others value our work or not. Kelly is doing what many others aren’t or can’t. She’s standing in the gap and being the unspoken voice of many Christian women/homemakers who are made to feel worthless and useless because of their decision to be full-time wives and mothers.
She is only echoing the hearts of women everywhere.
No one can “make you feel” anything. Kelly should remember that IT DOESN’T MATTER what the world thinks. Then she won’t let others “maker her feel” anything!
Blessings to you.
oops, I meant “by what others think”
