MONDAY, October 7

1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.

What would my life be like if I truly did everything for the glory of God?

How would I treat my family? How would I do my work? Would I practice my music more? Would I procrastinate? How would I treat my body? How would I act at church? Would I sit in the same spot? Would I speak more to visitors? How would I budget? Would I be more generous? How would I use social media?

Would I share more positive stories? Would I engage in unnecessary debates? How would I treat others? Would I be so judgmental? Would I be so impatient? Would I speak less? Would I read the Bible more? Would I be less challenging and confrontational? Would I use less plastic? Would I be more of an activist?

Would I pray more?
