1 Corinthians 10:31 – “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” NASU
How many of us do this? Be honest with yourself, do you? Do you all the time or just some of the time? As I read this my heart was smitten by the Holy Spirit and my mind instantly focused on a violation of this in my own life recently. I wish I could say that was the only occasion but I would never lie.
No matter what you are doing in life it is to be done “to the glory of God.” That covers everything and without saying it would suggest that some things are not to be done because they cannot be done “to the glory of God.” If my life is characterized by bringing Glory to God then my life is of such quality that it impacts others. People observe far more regarding Christians than they do in almost any other arena of life. If a person that has publicly and openly professed that Jesus is their Lord that person will be under a microscope everywhere that is known about them. That is not a bad thing but something that some seem to forget. That reminds me of the story I heard about a lady who was giving the driver in the car in front of her fits with hand gestures, waving her arms, shouting, and beating on the steering wheel when a policeman turned on his red lights and pulled her over. When he came to the window she asked, “Officer what on earth did I do? I was breaking no laws.” He said, “Ma’am based on the bumper sticker on your car I thought the vehicle might have been stolen.” She had a honk if you love Jesus bumper sticker on her car.
Make it the goal of your day to bring “glory to God” today in all that you do. Even if you fall short sometimes, you will have touched some lives positively that you might not have otherwise touched.
May God be with you as you go through your day!
