Do Everything…

Do Everything
by Steven Curtis Chapman

I wrote the song “Do Everything” really to remind myself and also to encourage others that everything matters; everything we do can be done as an act of worship.  1 Corinthians 10 says, “Whatever you do, do it for the glory of God.”  There’s this tendency it seems to think of life with this line drawn down the middle where there’s the spiritual stuff on one side and then just the stuff of life on the other. But I really think God wants us to remember, and I’m trying to learn, that whatever we do, it all matters.  Some
might say, 'well, my job or role isn't important enough to make any real difference," but I disagree.

1 Pet 4:10 & 11 addresses this, "God has given gifts to each of you from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God's generosity can flow through you. 11 Are you called to be a speaker? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Are you called to help others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then God will be given glory in everything through Jesus Christ. All glory and power belong to him forever and ever. Amen."

Whether it’s walking the dog, washing the dishes, taking out the trash, driving car pool, trading global stocks, leading a massive company, all of these as well as the really big spiritual moments, all of these can be done as an act of worship and everything can be done to bring glory to the God who made us for that very purpose.
