I started a tradition over at my other site (where I talk about the bible and money), where I would post a devotional thought on most Sundays. I then continued that practice on Fat Guy Skinny Wallet, and I hope to keep posting devotion messages here. My goal is to make this a weekly practice.
They will either be based on my own personal study, or from another source.
Today we are challenged to do everything (even eating) in a manner that brings glory to God, by J.R. Miller (courtesy of Grace Gems):
“Whether therefore you eat or drink, or whatever you do–do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
Nothing in life is left out–“whatever you do.” It extends even to eating and drinking. We are to do all things to the glory of God. This means that we must do everything in a way that will please Him.
To eat to the glory of God is to recognize Him as the Giver of our daily bread, to seek His blessing on it, to eat according to the divine laws, eating to be ready for the best service, and then to use all our strength in doing the work which God gives us to do.
One who eats self-indulgently or gluttonously, or who eats food that is injurious to his health, or who does not use the strength he derives from his food in living obediently–is not glorifying God. In all our life, in everything we do, we are to think of what will honor God.
