“… whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
1 Corinthians 10:31
Everything we do, we do for a reason. We may work to get paid, eat because we’re hungry or watch a movie for relaxation. Everything we do, we do to accomplish something. We don’t do stuff simply to have something to do.
Today’s verse gives us the ultimate purpose for everything we do once we’re a born-again believer. It says that whatever we do, we do it totally for the glory of God. This adjusts our focus from the task or the intended result and puts it back onto what is the reason for everything – bringing glory to God!
If what we’re doing isn’t bringing Glory to God then we need to adjust our focus and direction so that it does. We must understand that as we keep our focus on God, in everything we’re doing, it’ll causes Him to receive the glory and us to receive a “well done good and faithful” from the creator of all things.
This week is the time to adjust our focus. Let’s stop accepting worldly praise for our efforts. Instead, let’s redirect our focus towards God in every task, no matter how small or how large it is. As we allow the glory to go to Him, He’ll be honouring us. We’ll start accomplishing so much more than we ever have before simply by doing everything to the glory of God.
