Wednesday, November 2 – 1 Corinthians 10:31
Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all things for the glory of God.
For toddlers, learning to speak, walk, climb, and explore are exciting developments. With every new accomplishment they might announce “Ta-Dah!” These small, everyday tasks of climbing up into a chair or drinking water from a cup are major events worthy of celebration. As we grow, those ordinary tasks fall into the background of our lives. After climbing into a chair so many times or drinking from a cup multiple times a day for many, many days, these things that were once major milestones go by unnoticed. In this passage today we are reminded that all aspects of our lives are important to God and worth the intentional thought to consider what brings glory to Him.
It may seem overwhelming to think about giving God glory in all that you do, but when you look deeper, this practice gives your life more purpose than you could ever muster on your own. God can be glorified through doing the laundry for your family, preparing a meal, going on a road trip with a friend, visiting a neighbor, or even filling out a document at the DMV. When we look to give God the glory in all we do, we can have joy in all things, doing them to the best of our ability as we view them for His purposes instead of our own. Don’t overlook the opportunity that you have to be set apart in the most unexpected places, those we have discounted as unimportant or ordinary. God is ready to work through us to bring Him glory and to help us see more meaning in our daily walk with Him than ever before.
- What are some tasks that you write off as unimportant?
- What would it look like to glorify God in all you do? What would change? What would stay the same?
- Pray and ask God to show you what it would look like to give Him glory in all that you do today.
