If everything in your life cannot be the essential thing in your life, what is the most crucial aspect of the life that you want to live? If you were to choose your top priority, aim, or goal, what would you want?
Read Rick’s 31-Day Devotions
It is imperative that you are clear on the most critical thing in your life because that something will be the grid through which you will do life with God and others. Paul forever solidified what the primary objective of anyone’s life should be.
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. – 1 Corinthians 10:31
Paul’s chief aim is an all-inclusive, transcending goal. Nothing surpasses it. Nothing is of higher value. To glorify God must be the chief end of all humanity. And there will be a day when it will come to fruition. When the Lord rolls up the carpet on time, all people in heaven and hell will glorify God throughout eternity (Philippians 2:9-11).
To “glorify God” means that He is your chief aim. It could also mean to “spread the fame of God” or to make “His name great in all the earth.” It carries the idea of “giving Him all honor and respect.” It’s like standing in holy awe of Him, for who He is.
Time to Reflect
- Do you see the importance of God’s glory being your chief aim in how you live daily?
- What does that look like practically? Be specific.
