Action: Glorify

READ: “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God” 1 Cor 10.31.

THINK: Freedom in Christ, 10.23-30, expresses itself by seeking the glory of God, especially so that many might be saved, 32-33. His glory is his person. Every act is measured by this rule, for it follows the example of Christ, 11.1. This way, pleasing others, 10.33, avoids running the risk of abandoning the truth. We glorify God using our gifts, 1 Pet 4.11; in body and spirit, 1 Cor 6.20; in evangelization, 2 Thes 3.1.

ACT: Use your liberty for others to come to give glory to God.

PRAY: Father, glorify your name through my life and message.

ASK: Does this act or work show the glory of God?
