Sometimes familiarity presents us from seeing holiness. Jesus was unrecognized in his home town. The Scriptures only speak of Joseph as a worker in ordinary terms.

In our own lives, it is easy to expect that the extraordinary – the holy – is only manifest in fantastic ways. God hides the extraordinary in plain sight.

Gracious God, help me to see the holy in the ordinary. May Your Spirit inspire me to expect and hope for the miracle faith in my own words and deeds and these of others.
