A Reminder from Tozer: “No Common Act”

I find an old quote in one of my journals from A.W. Tozer:

“It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular; it is why he does it. The motive is everything. Let a man sanctify the Lord God in his heart, and he can therefore do no common act.”

I like to remember this. Sanctified, even the folding of laundry and the washing of dishes, even the picking of raspberries, the making of beds, the cleaning of toilets, and the shopping for groceries elevates from common to extraordinary.

Why we do what we do matters more than what we do.

We do no common acts today.
