God’s purpose is to bless us. Our purpose in life is to glorify Him. When we glorify God, we are celebrating whom He truly is. We glorify God with all that we have—our time, talents, finances, etc. Tabitha had time. Part of glorifying God is impacting other people’s lives. Tabitha used her time and talent to make tunics and garments for the widows in her community. She was full of good works and charitable deeds (verse 36).
What can you do today to glorify God? Are you a great cook? How about baking cookies or brownies or making a scrumptious meal for a neighbor who is sick or provide financial aid to someone who is struggling with debt? Or what about visiting a nursing home and reading to one of the residents? Is there a cause that you are interested in? How about volunteering? There are so many ways we can glorify God. Today, choose a way that works for you and do it!
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
