Do all to the glory of God.

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

1 Corinthians 10:31 (ESV)

One way of helping our minds focus on God is to do everything for Him. Our actions can sometimes get our minds off of unrighteous thoughts and keep us busy doing things for His glory. One motto to live by is to keep yourself busy doing something good, so that you’re too busy to do something bad.

In this specific passage, Paul is asking the people of the church of Corinth to reconsider how they’re living their life. No act of life is in itself either religious or secular. The quality of each act depends on the spirit which guides it, and the motive from which it springs. The most common thing we do may be done in a high Christian spirit. The greatest deed may spring from a low and selfish motive. A religious act done in a secular spirit is secular. A secular thing done in a religious spirit is religious.

In other words, make sure that when you go about your everyday life, make sure that what you do glorify God. Not only is God watching you, but so are non-Christians who are looking to justify their own lifestyle by looking at yours. So this week, pray that can you take a step back and look at your own lifestyle. Pray that God can intercede your thoughts, so that your actions can follow suit.
