Who doesn’t like a lazy day now and then? You know, the kind where you sleep in, stay in your pajamas all day while you watch bad TV, eat ice cream or popcorn and focus on Y-O-U.

We don’t get lazy days when it comes to our faith life. We’re constantly presented with wonderful opportunities to use our God-given gifts and treat others the way Jesus would, with love, joy and compassion. Your smile or service may open the door for a conversion experience for those you encounter. It can be hard work to keep that light shining all the time, but the rewards are worth it.

Lord, let me remember that working to bring souls to your kingdom is a round-the-clock labor of love.
