“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”
This proclamation from Paul in First Corinthians 10:31 is one of my favorite Bible verses. Whenever I am tempted to fulfill my own agenda or get caught up in the daily demands of life, this simple statement reinforces a basic truth: He is the reason I am here.
God has been gracious in providing for my every need….physically, emotionally and spiritually. Wouldn’t it seem self-centered of me if I were to ignore His loving care for me? Even the simplest routine of eating and drinking should cause my spirit to soar with an attitude of thankfulness and appreciation! Every moment of my day bears significance, aware of His presence, watching with pleasure. Does the mindset I live by declare this recognition and reverence? It should. The process of “doing” will naturally follow, once I surrender self and seek His exclusive approval.
If there’s one thing I can be sure about, it’s that my purpose is to glorify God in everything I do!
