Paul David Tripp says this: “If God doesn’t rule your mundane, then he doesn’t rule you. Because that’s where you live.” ‘Dramatic, life-altering moments come only a few times during our lifetime—that’s why they’re dramatic. The rest of our lives are lived in the common, ordinary mundane. God can use the ordinary moments in your life to glorify himself by conforming you into the image of his Son. That is precisely what he intends to do.’
