Whatever You Do
It is thrilling to realize that as we go about our simple routines, (whatever you do), you can easily glorify the Lord and let Him know we love Him. Don’t you imagine we are bringing smiles to His face!
I Corinthians 10:31 “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do,
do it all for the glory of the Lord.
Food is Not Our Master
Food is not our master. Jesus Christ is our Master. Just like money, food is good. It is a gift from God if placed in its rightful place. However, it can become a dominating, cruel master if our love for it becomes a priority over our love and pursuit of Jesus.
“All things are lawful, but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful, but not all things build up.”
1 Corinthians 10:23 New International Version (NIV)
The Believer’s Freedom
23 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”
—but not everything is constructive.
Matthew 6:24 warns us that we cannot serve two masters.
Close your eyes and think on ten things that happened over the past 48 or so hours that you are grateful for today. This is called Gratitude Streaming. Smile as you think of them, Do you know about keeping a Gift Score on a daily basis?

You are glorifying your Lord and Savior as He tells us to offer the sacrifice of Thanksgiving. You are Capturing Joy and Cultivating Happiness. Begin by keeping your Gift Score.
