Paul is reminding the church in Corinth that what they are preaching is not for their own glory, but to glorify God. We are to be humble, so that our lives are an example of the greatness of God and the transforming power of our relationship with Him. We are to be a light in a dark world, not to bring praise to ourselves, but to bring glory to God. Do your actions and deeds in your daily life show the glory of the Almighty God? This is challenged every day as we face the daily grind of life. Do you glorify God by having a positive attitude even when you are completing the same task you have to do at work for the 10th time, the 100th time, etc.? Do all for the glory of God!
Questions for further thought:
1. Is your life a shining light in a dark world?
2. What tasks in your life seem tedious? How can you do these tasks with a more positive attitude that glorifies God?
Challenge: Pray and ask God to give you a heart like Jesus. When taking the trash out this week, (a tedious task) say a short prayer to God thanking Him for all the blessing he has given you.
