Book a room to the glory of God? – some thoughts on Kingdom Work

It’s been a “few days” since I’ve blogged… not that I flatter myself to think anyone has actually noticed…but I’d like to make a plug for a site I was introduced to today and tell you why I think it’s worth note.

The site is

http://travelplanit.com/

It is through expedia, so you’re going to get the same deals as you would if you use expedia directly, except for one little tid-bit: All the profits the site makes from you booking your trip through them goes to mission work! Is that awesome or what?! This site is one of the many venues that we have available to us to obey the command of Scripture – “..Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

Now I’m not so naive as to think that one simply planning their next trip to Vegas so one can strike it rich at the slots justifies one’s greed, or gambling addiction thus permitting him to continue in it – that’s not what I’m saying at all. But if we have ways available to us where we can do the thing we need to get done routinely and make even something as mundane as trying to find a good rate on a flight, hotel, car rental, etc. a way to further the kingdom of our LORD – then why would you not do that?

I was sharing with a LifeGroup class today how God is giving me a growing desire to be consumed with His kingdom. Jesus tells us to seek His Kingdom first, and I think this is a great way to express that passion. It is my desire that God work in my life, and the life of my family, so much so that as I do things I’m always thinking of the Kingdom of God and how I can best serve His purpose. I want to be so passionate about Jesus that I find ways to make everything I do glorify Him – whether eating, drinking, or planning a family vacation. =)

So in brief – “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.”
