Glory to God

Description

Glorifying God can include the everyday tasks of being a faithful, loving parent.

1 Corinthians 10:31

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

I love that I don’t have to be someone big and important to glorify God. I can bring glory to him in my own home rocking my baby to sleep. I can bring glory to him serving my children their dinner or going to the grocery store. How cool is that? I think it’s amazing because the world we live in focuses on the rich and famous, two things I will never be. We are reminded in this verse that even the small things in life, like eating or drinking, are important to God and should be important to us too.

We have been focusing on purpose this week, and this verse reminds us that everything in life has purpose if we glorify God in the process. How do you glorify God while rocking your children to sleep? You are peaceful, patiently waiting for them to drift off. You can glorify God by serving your family with a good attitude and loving spirit. You can glorify God at the grocery store by giving those around you grace when grace is not deserved. And you can have a smile on my face as you check out. It all matters!

Prayer

God, be with me throughout my day and remind me that everything matters to you. Give me your love, your grace, your amazing mercy. God, show me how to love others the way you love them. I tend to 
be impatient and irritable. Take that away and replace it with patience and love. Thank you that the small things matter to you, so I can bring glory to you in my home even while doing laundry. Amen.
