The Value of Work Offered to God

I've been reading A Heart on Fire: Rediscovering Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus (review to come soon). I came across this quote on work which was worth sharing:

We offer Jesus all the work we will do this day. It may not seem very important. . . it may feel like a waste of time, like it is not doing anything to advance the work of salvation or God's kingdom. The task itself is not important, as long as it is not sinful. What is important is that every task, no matter how seemingly meaningless or unimportant, becomes an act of love for God. Blessed Teresa of Calcutta like to say that what mattered was not doing great things for God but rather doing everything, especially little things, as an act of love for God. We don't want to lose any opportunity to show God our love, and we can do this by offering up our works as acts of love for him.
