1 Corinthians 10:31 - Maxim for Living! [Great Guide for WWJD]

1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV) Therefore, whether you eat or drink, 
or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.  

Whatsoever ye do - In all things whatsoever, whether of a 
religious or civil nature, in all the common, as well as sacred, actions 
of life, keep the glory of God in view, and steadily pursue in all 
this one end of your being, the planting or advancing the vital 
knowledge and love of God, first in your own soul, then in all mankind. 
[Wesley's Notes] 

The supreme maxim of duty, applies to all that Christians "eat 
or drink" ... indeed to whatever they "do"; [Expositor's Greek 

Here is a principle that is to underlie every motive, thought, 
and act. GW127, 8 

There could hardly be a better standard of behavior than this. 
Before you commit to any action, ask yourself, "Can I do this to the 
glory of God? Would this action put God's reputation in a good light?" 
[Life Principles SB By Charles Stanley] 

This is basically challenging us to glorify God in our behavior, 
whether we are at work, whether we are at home: Wherever we are and 
whatever we do, we should strive to glorify God. [Dr. Barry Black; 
Heritage Foundation lecture #1249] 

Paul sets forth a rule that is simple, easily understood, yet 
comprehensive, profound, and far reaching. Consciously and with unwavering 
determination the Christian must do everything, even the routine items of 
daily life, in such a way that God, not man, is honored. Such a course 
calls for constant dedication of all the powers of mind and body to 
Him, and daily surrender of all one's being to His Spirit. [SDA Bible 

God's love must so permeate our motives that all we do will be 
for his glory. Keep this as a guiding principle by asking, "Is this 
action glorifying God?" or "How can I honor God through this action?"  
[Life Application SB] 

Christians are not at liberty to follow the promptings of the 
natural, unconverted heart and the impulses of the unregenerate body. 
They are under obligation to bring every thought, word, and deed into 
harmony with God's revealed will. [SDA Bible Commentary] 

   If you are a publisher or a pastor, a ditch-digger or a 
pilot, a fisherman or a fruit grower, a garage mechanic or a furniture 
maker, a writer or a homemaker, an office worker or a congressman ... 
there are unique things involved in your moment-by-moment work since 
you are a child of the Creator of the universe.... 
   You are to do well, whatever you are doing, to the glory of 
God (1Pe.4:11).  Just as flowers that grow on the Alpine peaks, 
beauty in the cracks of rocks with perhaps no one ever passing that 
way, are not growing in vain because God sees them, so it is true of 
the human being.  A person may live alone, walk alone, and feel that 
no one is recognizing that he or she is being patient in the 
tribulation of loneliness ... but God does know, and is aware of the 
whisper, "I love you, God.  Please accept my praise as I walk alone 
today."  This is true of people in prisons, in concentration camps, in 
hospital beds, or in wheelchairs.... "Work" to the glory of God can be 
come in every part of life ... which is what makes it all so fair.  
No one gets a bigger opportunity than another.  And no one is "out 
of work"!  Edith Schaeffer; [Time with God SB] 


Colossians 3:17 (KJV) And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do 
all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the 
Father by him. 

1 John 2:6 (NKJV) He who says he abides in Him ought himself 
also to walk just as He walked.  

John 13:15 (NKJV) For I have given you an example, that you 
should do as I have done to you. 

1 Peter 2:21 (NKJV) For to this you were called, because Christ 
also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow 
His steps:  

John 8:29 (NKJV) And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has 
not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him."  

1 John 3:22 (KJV)And whatever we ask we receive from Him, 
because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing 
in His sight.  

John 4:34 (KJV)Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of 
Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.  

John 5:30 (KJV)I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; 
and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but 
the will of the Father who sent Me.  

John 6:38 (KJV)For I have come down from heaven, not to do My 
own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
