How to Do All to the Glory of God [1 Corinthians 10:31 Daily Devotional]

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

1 Corinthians 10:31

Paul, the author of this verse, is encouraging us to do everything for God’s glory. He lists two small but important tasks so that we don’t think anything is too small. No matter what we do or where we do it, we should do that thing for the glory of God.

How to Do All to the Glory of God

This verse has at least two implications for you and me. The first is that all things are to be done to the glory of God. Whether you’re eating, drinking, sleeping, working, or anything else, do each of those things for God’s glory. This isn’t just for the “spiritual” things you do like praying and reading your Bible, but it’s for even the most mundane tasks that you and I don’t assign spiritual value to.

The second implication is more hidden. Because everything is done for the glory of God, that means that you need to do everything as if it’s worthy of God’s glory. There is no halfway in the kingdom of God, so when you give yourself to something, give your all. If you’re at work, don’t do the bare minimum, rather work as if you’re working for the glory of God. Just keeping that in mind will help you to elevate your effort to meet this requirement that Paul is laying out for you.

No task is too big or too small to be done with excellence. So, it’s my encouragement to you that you would give everything you have to everything you do.

Prayer

Father, thank you for giving me opportunities to serve you with excellence. Give me the strength to treat each thing I set out to do as something deserving your glory. Help me to have continued motivation and inspiration in these things. It’s in Jesus’s name I pray, amen.
