For His Glory or your Glory?

By In

Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭10‬:‭31‬ NASB)

This verse reminds me of a Tasha Cobbs song called “For your glory”. 

This verse underpins all that we do as Christians and should be a yard stick that we judge our motives and actions by. 
In our workplace, we should ask ourselves- am I working for God’s glory or my glory? At school, I am studying for His glory or my glory? Do I do the things I do for His glory or my glory?

The heart and the mind behind our actions determines whether we are doing things for His Glory or ours.

Some people do good things for Public image or to receive praise from men, that is not a cause to glorify His name but rather to glorify themselves instead (Matthew 6:14). Let’s have this at the back of our minds that not every good cause is pleasing to God except a good cause that is for His Glory and nothing else.
Lets learn to judge our motivation of doing things by asking ourselves is it for His glory or my glory? And if we realise it is not for God’s glory but for our selfish gain, we need to put our hearts and minds right to do it for His glory before we do it.
For us to excel at the things that we do, we need to develop a mindset of doing it for His glory.
In conclusion, everything we do as believers should ultimately lead to praise and adoration of God.
