Episode 2: How doing dishes helps me abide in christ

I know hate is a strong word but I think it best describes my relationship with dishes and cleaning the kitchen. This is the chore I despise most when it comes to cleaning the house. Anyone else with me? 

And yet, I have started to really enjoy my time doing the dishes and even look forward to it.

Join me on today’s podcast as we chat about practical ways to abide in Jesus and that includes while doing the dishes.

Highlights from this episode:

I have started to really enjoy my time doing the dishes and even look forward to it. 

What changed? 

My understanding of 3 things. who Jesus is, what it means to linger with him, what the good work is that he designed me to do.

And as much as I hate to admit it, doing the dishes is part of the good works he has prepared for me. It’s a way to show love for my family and appreciation for the abundance that he has given me. 

Jesus isn’t just found in the Scriptures or in a quiet time. Jesus is found in everything because he created everything.
