All to God's glory....

Noah's little hoodie!

"So whether you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" I Cor 10:31

I've been thinking about this verse alot lately because I have just realized how much of my day consists with eating and drinking. Noah gets fed every 3 hours, and naps for about an hour and a half inbetween. And I feed Noah 6 times a day. So I get 5 increments of an hour and a half where I need to use the time very wisely....otherwise I realize its time to feed Noah all over again! :) 3-4 of those increments of time are usually spent preparing/eating/ and cleaning up after breakfast lunch or dinner, or shopping for food. I love preparing meals for my family...and nursing Noah...don't get me wrong! But I just realized that a majority of our day revolves around food and drink....so how do we give glory to God in what seems so simple as putting food on the table, or feeding a newborn?? I've realized that I've viewed this time spent not as time that COULD give glory to God....but just as a part of life. But Paul says we CAN give glory to God while we eat and drink....and WHATEVER I do! It's not time waisted for the kingdom, but rather a time where I can praise Him for providing for us, and give Him glory by lifting my thoughts from the necessity of eating, to His tender mercies towards us in blessing us with the enjoyment of food! Like Noah I should long for the pure milk of the word....its a daily (well, almost hourly!) reminder.
