1 Corinthians 10:31 - Supreme Maxim for Living!
1 Corinthians 10:31: Supreme Maxim for Living!
1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV) Therefore, whether you eat or drink,
or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
One early spring day I went to visit Corrie ten Boom, the
survivor of the Nazi holocaust who shared her story in The Hiding Place -
in her latter years, she lived in southern California. My friends
and I were able to help Pam, her companion, learn basic things about
Corrie's disability and her wheelchair. After our short training session,
we sat in Corrie's backyard, admiring her early spring flowers, and
enjoying the warm sun on our backs.
The day was filled with activity, yet relaxed and slow-paced.
After we enjoyed the flowers, we went into the kitchen for tea and
chocolates. After tea, we read the Bible and prayed. Then we retired to the
parlor and talked. I was amazed how quickly the day flew by, yet how
peaceful and stress-free it seemed. Pam explained, "Tante Corrie and I
never do lots of things at once. We don't sit outside, read and enjoy
tea and chocolates. We space everything out so we can truly
appreciate the individual pleasures of each activity." That day I witnessed
the glory of God in watching spring flowers bob in the breeze... in
savoring the taste of dark chocolate... in smelling the fragrance of Earl
Grey tea... in listening to an elderly saint pray... and of
discovering new insights in God's Word. All because I lived the day at
Someone has pushed the fast-forward button on our days. As
the microwave heats our morning Danish, we pay bills on-line, listen
for the chime on the dryer, all the while eavesdropping on Dr.
Dobson on Christian radio. Little wonder we feel stressed out.
Galatians 5:25 says, "... let us keep in step with the Spirit." Often the
Spirit takes very slow steps. Push the pause button and find a way you
can slow down today. Enjoy God's glory in every small thing.
Spirit of Christ, help me to keep in step with you today and
not run ahead. [Joni Eareckson Tada Daily Devotional:
