17 Whatever you say or do, do it in the name of the Lord Jesus. Give thanks to God the Father through the Lord Jesus. Colossians 3:17 (NLV)
I have no doubt that a great deal of thought went into the most recent “Dave” commercial for Staples. Dave is everyone in his office, from receptionist, copy repairman, assistant and CEO every person is Dave. Dave wears many hats, and is very cheerfully busy and in every instance shares a word and a smile.

Throughout my life I have worn a variety of hats, not titles, but hats. Granted, unlike Dave, I may have groused and grumbled when a particular hat landed on my head. I mean, really who wants to gleefully carry buckets of mail in sweltering heat not wearing a postal uniform or the act of pouring vinegar into the office coffeemaker to clean it after the painfully slowest dripping pot before a large meeting? Professing to dedicate each day and each activity to the Lord means, I am to take pride in even the most menial tasks. I do not have to wait for housekeeping to pick up that piece of paper I see on the ground or take a second to push in a chair, just because. Each act is an opportunity to serve, not only God but those around me. Lord, help me this and everyday to be cheerful in my service to You and others.
Making His praise glorious!
