Why do people do what they do? I mean, what would possess anyone to eat 76 hot dogs in ten minutes? (possessed is a definite possibility) The fame, the glory of holding a world record, the adulation of adoring fans that can’t count to ten? Why do you do what you do? If you are a follower of Jesus the answer is easy or as Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.” Jesus told us to “let our light so shine before men that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in Heaven.” We should be motivated in everything we do, whether at work, at play, on Sunday or Monday, whether driving among snowbirds or waiting in an endless checkout line, to honor the Lord with our actions and speech. People should see something different in us and when they ask what it is, we should happily tell them Jesus! We need to be constantly showing the world Jesus’ love, but we first need to start with our brothers and sisters. The church, His family, should be so overflowing with love that it splashes on all who pass by! Check your motivation. If it isn’t to honor God, better check out why not! Don’t be hiding your light, let it shine so all can see it, unless you’re planning to eat 76 hot dogs. That is a motivation that definitely needs some checking!
