Do it All For the Glory of God
Such a familiar verse 1Cor 10:31; “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
I was recently considering some of the mundane things in my life and wondered how could I do this (apply 1 Cor 10:31), whatever I do, do it all for the glory of God.
Perhaps it starts with understanding what glory is. Some common uses of the word glory would be weighty or importance. I would like to consider another meaning, worship.
How do I do the mundane things in my life as worship to God?
For example, how could I pay my bills as an act of worship?
-Pray 1 Thes 5:17
-Consider the person I owe more important than myself. Phil 2:3
-Be thankful that I have the means to pay my bills. 1 Thes 5:18
-Pray for the means to pay my bills.
-Pay in a timely manner. Rom 13:8
-Seek God’s wisdom in how I spend money. James 1:5
-Consider my faithfulness in how I view the money God has entrusted to me. Gal 5:22.
Lord I pray that I would consider others more important than myself, that I would always be thankful. Lord I desire to make much of you by doing what I say I am going to do and do it in a timely manner. Lord please allow me your wisdom as I live the remaining days on this earth. Lord grow me in my faithfulness that I would be a good witness of Your hand on my life. Lord, show me my folly so that I would confess my sins 1 John 1:9 and repent.
Any mundane things in your life you should be doing to the glory of God?
