Application for Oct 26-27, 2013 :: 1 Cor 10:31

I Corinthians 10:31

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

I wonder if Paul had any idea that the letters that he wrote to churches would be read by people around the world thousands of years later. And not just read, but studied, parsed, memorized, used to change lives.

I wondered that today as I thought about this verse, because with this sentence, it seems like he maybe had a little awareness of the impact of his words. It’s perfect.

For one thing, it’s a really good way of guiding a person in how to live their life, isn’t it?

First, as you’re making plans for an activity, you should ask, can I do this to the glory of God? If the answer is no, then (obviously) you shouldn’t do it.

If the answer is yes, then do it in the way that most glorifies God. And if there isn’t a simple answer to that question, then it is a good use of your mind to figure out the complex answer to that question.
