An Eternal PB&J
1 Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
The glory of God is eternal. Therefore, everything done for the purpose of pleasing him, giving him credit he is due, and making him big is eternal too. We do not know how every little thing we do fits into The Big Picture, so what we do, we do for the one who does know how all things work and fit together.
Whatever activity we do big, small, amazing or seemingly insignificant can all be ways to glorify God eternally. My husband always says that even every peanut butter and jelly sandwich we make is eternal when do it to please God. “May the kid I’m making this sandwich for be nourished by it, thankful to God for the provision, and may he know the person who made this sandwich loves him because God loves me.” That’s an eternal pb&j.
If I do anything right today, I will thank God for helping me. If I mess something up today, I will ask God to help me. If I am worried and anxious today, I will remember how God has never failed to help me and be with me. These practices inserted into any and every feeling, activity, and moment in life is how I make “whatever” I do be done “for the glory of God.”
Thank you that what happens today matters and makes a difference. Thank you for the chores and task I need to do today and errands I need to run as all are opportunities for me to look to you in doing them. Thank you that we are not created beings with pointless lives, but you make every day and every moment count when we include you in them. I love you, and thank you and desire everything I do be like I’m doing it for you. And I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
