“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31)
A life that honors God is not defined by religious duties. It is not limited to church services or times of worship. It is about all of your life, including the ordinary things like eating, drinking, doing household chores or raising children. Living in God’s presence is not primarily about specific things we do or do not do, but about our mindset in everyday life.
We can enjoy the food God gives us with thankfulness — or we can take it for granted. We can do the duties of the day in a spirit of adoration and gratitude to God — or we can ignore Him. We can do our work to the best of our ability — or we can waste our talents.
The Lord gave all of us a job or a task in life. For some, this may be in fulltime missionary service. For others, it may be to drive a taxi or to be a teacher in primary school. We can do this work to God’s glory, doing our best while being aware of His presence in our lives. Such a life honors the Lord.
Do you have this mindset?
