In our everyday lives as Christians, God should always be present. He is the alpha and the omega. He is the source of everything in existence. So it stands to reason that we glorify him in every aspect of life. Some people often think that you need to go to Church or prayer meetings in order to glorify God. But in truth, you could glorify God in every aspect of your life. By doing so, you will be able to make God the center of your life and that of your family’s as well. Here some ways to glorify God in every aspect of your life.
1. Say a prayer when you wake up
When you wake up in the morning, the very first thing that you should do is say a prayer of thanksgiving. It does not have to be an elaborate or lengthy prayer. What’s important is that you thank God for the life that you have. Thank him for letting you wake up and see another sunrise. Thank him for giving you another day to be with your loved ones and achieve your full potential as a person. By saying a prayer when you wake up you are not only setting yourself up for a good day, but glorifying God as well.
2. Thank God before every meal
Although we are usually taught to pray before a meal as kids, it is still a habit we tend to forget as we grow older. But this simple prayer is a great way to glorify God. Remember that you would not be able to nourish yourself without God. So before you eat, you should take the time to give thanks for the food on your plate and the continued providence that God gives you every day.
3. Glorify God by helping your fellow man
Yet another way you could glorify God is to help your fellow man. Remember that Jesus spent a majority of his missions are helping people in need. He not only taught his first followers, but helped them as well. So if you want to truly glorify God, you should emulate Jesus and help your fellow man. You can do this in a variety of ways. You can give alms to the poor or help in soup kitchens. In truth, there are a myriad of ways you can help your fellow man and glorify God in the process.
4. Take care of your body
Remember that your body is not fully yours. It was given to you by God. And like anything of value it should be taken care of. Your body is a vessel that is blessed by God. And you can glorify God by taking care of your body. Try to live a healthier lifestyle. Plan out your meals and exercise regularly. Stay away from vices and live a more active life. Living a healthier lifestyle will allow you to live a fuller and more complete life. It will also give you a more positive outlook on life. Overall, the healthier you are, the more you glorify God.
