We say and do everything for something.
What is it?
We go to church for something.
We read our Bible for something.
We volunteer for something.
We tithe for something.
We pray for something.
We live for something.
We play for something.
We eat for something.
We cry for something.
Do you know what you do this stuff for?
I’ve been wrestling with all that this week after our pastor challenged us in his message.. I’m asking myself, “What’s my motivation for going to church, reading my Bible, playing, praying, living.” I’ve come to the conclusion that I do what I do either for my good, or for God’s glory. 1 Corinthians 10:31 says,
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
Colossians 3:10 says,
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
I would tremble if I saw an account of all the things I’ve said or done either for my good or for God’s glory. I’m afraid the list would be embarrassingly skewed.
