We were placed on this earth to worship and serve the Lord. While God could have made the rocks cry out in praise to Him, He wanted to create man instead to worship Him. He gave man a mind to think about the things of God, hands to lift up in worship to Him, a voice to sing praises to His name, and a heart to live a life of worship as Romans 12:2 tells us. He wants us to bring glory to His name in everything we do. When we go to work, we should praise Him. When we are loving our spouses and children, we should praise Him. When we meet people, we should praise Him. When we go out into the community, we should praise Him.
In 1 Corinthians 10:31-32 Paul says, “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Don’t give offense to Jews or Gentiles or the church of God. I, too, try to please everyone in everything I do. I don’t just do what is best for me; I do what is best for others so that many may be saved.” Paul lived a life worthy of God’s praise. He tried to be all things to all people because he cared about their salvation. So in everything he did, he thought about the lives of others.
Whatever you do, think about the lives of the people around you: your coworkers, your friends, your family, the lost community, anyone you come in contact with. How can you live your life in such a way that brings them to know the Lord?
