Peeling Potatoes to the Glory of God

There is no sacred vs. secular distinction when it comes to glorifying God in our work. All work is pleasing to him, provided it is done in love and service to our neighbor and with a view towards excellence. 

"As Eric Liddell's missionary father exhorts him in Chariots of Fire, "You can praise the Lord by peeling a spud, if you peel it to perfection." Your daily work is ultimately an act of worship to the God who called and equipped you to do it - no matter what kind of work it is." (Keller, Every Good Endeavor, 80)
