Do it All For the Glory of God

Tom Angstead November 22, 2011

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.

Prayer

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?
