"Do all to the glory of God"

Paul sounded no uncertain tone when he declared, "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." While he thus proclaimed a rule of conduct of the very highest order, he at the same time drew the line of demarcation between all right and wrong action. Nothing should be done but that which would glorify God! What a safeguard for the Christian! What a sure entrance into heaven, harmony, for the one who lives in obedience to it!

One difficulty which claims to hinder the putting of this rule into practice is the human tendency to consider the demands of matter as paramount. Men are so apt to call that wisdom which appears agreeable to materiality. Instead of working from the standpoint of glorifying God, they too frequently make material comfort and material satisfaction their goal. No true good can ever be won from a divided purpose. To seek both matter and Mind is to find how true are Jesus' words: "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."
