Scrubbing toilets for Jesus. My friend lives and breathes for Jesus Christ. For her, scrubbing the filth and scum out of other people’s toilets for what will likely be a mere pittance of money let alone glamour when compared with the salary she once had as a result of medicating people, assisting doctors, putting IV lines in dying people, comforting people in a panic or grieving, helping to save lives, etc. in a sometimes jam packed, fast-paced emergency room outside a major city, is a blessing. Why?
Because to my friend, everything in life is an opportunity to love and serve the Lord – and to tell the world about Him. As though it’s not enough that she would want to donate the very little money she makes now to Walk by Faith Ministry whose mission it is to share the Gospel while ministering the Lord’s love to a world in need, she will undoubtedly look for other ways to bring glory to God out of a few hours of plunging down into the dirty bowels of toilets. This is a woman who is constantly out in shops, parking lots, people’s homes, on the sides of streets, on farms, in the middle of roads, anywhere and everywhere, taking every chance she can find to talk about the Lord Jesus Christ.
To her, scrubbing toilets is nothing more nor less than another opportunity to humble herself in love and reverence to the Lord as she reminds the rest of us by her heart and actions what it looks like to truly work to bring God glory in all that we do.
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Colossians 3:17
