God’s Glory

February 11, 2021


1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1

Psalm 119:33-40


“…do everything for the glory of God.”

It’s amazing how much our lives can change when we truly try and do everything for the glory of God. When we approach our lives with this question in mind, we develop a new framework for understanding our work in the world.

When we orient our lives towards God’s glory, we approach our tasks and our lives with a theological (God oriented) mindset instead of an anthropological (human oriented) mindset. When everything is about me the daily tasks of my life, from checking email to doing laundry to driving to work, it can become rote and discouraging.

But when everything is done with God’s glory in mind, all of a sudden, even the commute to work becomes an opportunity to propel me forward in mission. This is clearly Paul’s framework for understanding his own life. As verse 33 explains, Paul seeks to “please everyone” but not for his own benefit, but only for the benefit of God’s glory. 

Today, let’s be imitators of those that live for God’s glory, because this is the imitation of Christ.


  • How am I feeling about my life today? Am I discouraged or is there glory?
  • Today, what is the thing that I least want to do, (but know I have to do) and how can I make that task about God’s glory?


  • What is something you saw today or yesterday that reminded you of God’s glory?


Gracious Lord, you are a God of glory and power. Remind us that in everything we do, you are with us and for us. Make today be a day of living for your glory. In Jesus name, Amen.
