Glorifying God in every aspect of life

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. - 1 Corinthians 10:31

You may be surprised to know that throughout his or her lifetime, the average American:

  • Spends 3 years in business meetings
  • Spends 13 years watching TV
  • Consumes 109,354 pounds of food
  • Makes 1,811 trips to McDonalds
  • Spends $6,881 in vending machines
  • Eats 35,138 cookies and 1,483 pounds of candy
  • Catches 304 colds
  • Spends 24 years sleeping

It’s amazing to see those kinds of numbers isn’t it? But what many Christians don’t realize is that even in the seemingly “mundane” aspects of life like eating or sleeping, God can be honored. In fact, as you see in today’s verse, you can glorify God in whatever you do!

It’s easy to slip into the mindset of “sacred” versus “secular” and think, I can really only glorify God when I’m reading my Bible or singing to Him. But in reality, God doesn’t just want an hour on Sunday, He wants all of you 24 hours a day and 7 days a week!

So whatever your daily routine has you doing, glorify God. If you’re having lunch, use it as a time to thank God for the blessings of food. If you’re meeting with friends, show them the love of Christ in how you talk and act. When you do that, you’ll start to understand what it really means to glorify God with your life!

Prayer Challenge

Ask God to show you “routine” areas of your life where you can bring glory to Him!
