Reading: Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Thought for Reflection: We started the week by celebrating the wonderful truth that God has chosen us to be part of his family. This is not the end, however, only the means to an end. He has called us to be part of his family so that we can serve him in every area of our lives; shopping, watching TV, work, eating with the family, visiting friends… the list goes on.

Prayer: Think through the day ahead in prayer, asking God what you can do to serve him in each part of it.
