living for God.

I used to carry this scripture in my order book when I worked in restaurants. It’s from a chapter in 1 Peter titled, ‘Living for God.’

It continues:

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

It’s always been so profound and simple to me.

To live for God, we must love others and simply do whatever it is we do. It’s not complicated, but it is meaningful.

If you speak, speak of God. If you serve (re: work at a job, raise kids, volunteer, etc), allow God to be your strength in that. And that covers all the bases.

That’s living for God. Amen.
