Yesterday was cold and rainy. So I decided to make my current favorite soup {recipe here}. And somewhere between adding the tomatoes and chicken broth the verse popped into my head, “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31).

What does that mean?

I don’t have a full answer. But here are a few thoughts.

  • It means more than thanking God for the food.
  • It means more than using the energy from the food to do God’s work.
  • It refers to the actual act of eating itself.
  • I don’t think you have to be actively thinking directly about God to obey.
I asked Eric what he thought. And he said, “Well if you think about Jesus, his entire life was about bringing glory to the Father.” I pressed harder, “But how do I  know when I’m doing it well?” His answer was something like the more our lives are all about loving God and loving others the more it will trickle down into absolutely everything we do. 
So, like I said, not a complete answer, but a few thoughts.
Do you have a current favorite recipe for a rainy day? Or a sunny day? Post a link in the comments section! I’d like to try eating it for the glory of God!
