Notice this contrast: fearing God speaks of our attitudes; giving glory to God speaks of our actions. Fearing God has to do with what we think. Giving glory to God has to do with what we do. Fearing God deals with an inner commitment to make God the center of our life. Giving glory to God deals with how our inner convictions translate into a lifestyle that honors God in everything we do
In his urgent appeal to the church at Corinth, the apostle Paul explains what it means to give glory to God: “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). When God is the center of our life, our one desire is to give glory to Him in every aspect of our life, whether that has to do with our diet and the things we eat, our dress and the things we wear, our entertainment and the things we view, or our music and the things we listen to. We give glory to God as we reveal His character of love to the world through lives committed to doing His will. This is all the more important in the light of earth’s final end-time judgment.
