In our opinion, most people write about spiritual disciplines as though they are ends in themselves.
~MICHAEL FROST, ALAN HIRSCH, The Faith of Leap
I think about this kind of stuff.
Why do we do what we do?
What’s our bottom line?
I need to know before I sign up.
While it’s not necessarily wrong to do things just for themselves,
wouldn’t it be better to do them with a purpose?
And isn’t that purpose for the glory of God? Isn’t that why we’re here?
Is there any good thing we do that couldn’t be done for the glory of God?
Eating. Cooking. Sleeping. Loving. Building. Reading. Writing. Playing. Praying. Cleaning. Serving. Taking. Laughing. Surfing. Studying. Talking. Creating. Resting. Receiving. Giving. Guiding. Teaching. Learning. Confessing. Celebrating. Thinking. Worshiping.
For his glory.
Is it too much to ask from us?
Think about it.
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do,
do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
And whatever you do, in word or deed,
do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through him.
