Do Everything for the Glory of God

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

What do you have that you haven’t been given (1 Cor 4:7)? God gives us everything. Every single thing.

Think of all the gifts and blessings God gives to you: your talents and abilities, drives and desires, every moment of time to use and enjoy these, and every dime of treasure you earn when you employ your time and talent. Everything!

What do you do with these gifts? How do you use them? We know from paragraph 226 in the Catechism that we are to make good use of created things; to use them only insofar as they bring us closer to God. How we use our time and talent and how we spend our money impacts our relationship with God. It is important to get this right. In Luke 16:11 Jesus tells us that if we are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth – which is eternal life!

So, in whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.
