Do All to the Glory of God

After finishing his breakfast, I told my son to sweep up the mess he had just created from eating. I then reminded him to do a good job. His tendency is to simply do the job, but not do it well or completely. As I was talking, I glanced at our kitchen wall where I had stencilled 1 Corinthians 10:31 a year ago.

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

I directed his eyes to the verse and told him that we need to do everything in a way that is glorifying to God, including sweeping the floor. He understood and to my delight, he did a great job. This little talk only took several minutes. It wasn’t a long and arduous Bible study, just a very simple lesson. Even though it is not easy taking care of four little ones 24/7, I am thankful that I am with them 24/7 so that I can impart these little lessons.

    To me, this is a great example of what Louis Priolo refers to as teaching the Scriptures our children in the “milieu” (midst) of life.

    Follow up post idea for my wife: share with Matthew how sweeping the floor can glorify God.
