“Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Cor. 10:31)
God’s first commitment is to His own glory and that this is the basis for ours.
Why is it important to be stunned by the God-centeredness of God? Because many people are willing to be God-centered as long as they feel that God is man-centered. It is a subtle danger. We may think we are centering our lives on God, when we are really making Him a means to self-esteem.
