Details can be important.
For example, one wrong calculation can cause a spaceship to miss its target by thousands of miles, and a decimal point can change a deal from good to bad. As a former Pharisee, Paul was a man who appreciated lists and details, but in 1 Corinthians 10:31 he gives more of a general instruction than a list to check off. Here’s what he wrote:
“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31 NKJV
Do the words “whatever” and “all” mean “whatever” and “all”? Yes, they mean a disciple’s whole life should be oriented toward glorifying God. They cover the workplace, leisure, going to the mailbox, and cutting the grass. They mean a trip to the grocery store can have eternal purpose. Have you ever prayed with someone in the grocery store? You could. If someone shares a deep burden, you could quietly pray with them right there on the cereal aisle; nothing dramatic, just a brief word. They may be surprised as much as you afterward, and God gets glorified.
What routine activity will you be part of today that could bring glory to the Lord? Whatever you do…
