What is the basic instruction for living? King Solomon offers some advice:
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might; for there is no activity or planning or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol where you are going. (Ecclesiastes 9:10 NASB)
That may not sound encouraging at first, but consider Solomon’s words in relation to something Yeshua said about our Heavenly Father:
Now He is not the God of the dead but of the living; for all live to Him. (Luke 20:38 NASB
In other words, while we have breath, our lives should reflect the glory of our Creator. How do we do that? Yeshua has some advice on that also:
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6:33 NASB)
Seeing first His kingdom and His righteousness is something the Marlin family seeks to do. That’s what inspired them to establish Shalomstead, their family business in Edmonton, Kentucky. The Marlins are gifted artisans, offering hand-drawn images based on scripture passages which they can put on cards, prints, t-shirts, and other items. Michael Marlin joins us on this show to tell us how this family business got started, and how it has been a means to share with others the joy they find in glorifying the Living God even in the routine of everyday life.
