If you can learn to floss your teeth or trim your toenails in a manner that glorifies God, I would be most interested in knowing your techniques. After the tooth flossing and toenail glorification has been mastered, you can then go to work hallowing God while removing lint from the old belly button. I would like to know how you do this, too.
I knew an alcoholic who thought he was glorifying God while pickling his liver and the corner tavern. As he guzzled beers and munched on stale pretzels at the mahogany bar, he talked to his fellow drinkers "about the man upstairs." I kid you not. Those were his words.
We can bring glory to Jesus Christ or cast a shadow on His Holy Name through the everyday experiences in our lives. I do not think He expects you to sing the Hallelujah Chorus while slaving deodorant under your arms or reciting Psalm 23 while sloshing and gargling mouthwash, but the whole of your life should reflect a sincere devotion to Christ Jesus.
In John 14, Jesus says, "If you love Me, you will keep my commandments." How are you doing with that? Are you keeping His commandments?
Let's be fair--how am I doing in keeping His commandments? Friend, I have my lapses and my moments of weakness. Thankfully, God's grace is greater than my disgrace.
We can glorify Him by not falling into traps of petty legalism. So let's not fall into petty legalism, agree? After all, no matter how good you are, you will never be good enough. Being good enough is never good enough--being forgiven is.
Think about this the next time you trim those annoying nostril hairs.
