Everyday, Ordinary Life.

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you:
Take your everyday, ordinary life -
your sleeping, eating,
going-to-work and walking-around life,
and place it before God as an offering.
Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.
Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture
that you fit into it without even thinking.
Instead, fix your attention on God.
You'll be changed from the inside out.
Readily recognize what he wants from you and quickly respond to it.
Unlike the culture around you,
always dragging you down to its level of immaturity,
God brings out the best in you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

~ Romans 12: 1-2 (The Message)
I love those last two sentences, especially in this daily preschool culture in which I am fully immersed.
I feel like God is saying, "I know. Just please, be the adult."
