Torii, the traditional Japanese gate usually found at entrances of Shinto shrines, marks the transition from the mundane to sacred.
In contrast, for the follower of Jesus Christ, even the mundane can be sacred.
Steven Curtis Chapman put into song 1 Cor 10:31 (whatever you do, do it for the glory of God) and Rom 12:1 (whatever you do that you offer to God forms part of your worship).
DO EVERYTHING (by Steven Curtis Chapman) Excerpts
You’re picking up toys on the living room floor
For the fifteenth time today
Matching up socks
Sweeping up lost cheerios that got away
You put a baby on your hip
Color on your lips and head out the door
While I may not know you,
I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes, does it matter at all?
Well let me remind you, it all matters just as long
As you do everything you do
To the glory of the One who made you,
‘Cause He made you,
Every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
Tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do
