Purpose Driven Life 7

PDL Day 7 – The Reason for Everything

For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever
(Rom 11:36)

The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech
And night unto night reveals knowledge. (Psalm 19:1)

* Love this psalm.

*Thought - It's curious how everything else: all animals, the careful set of the stars in the sky, the quiet breathing of the oceans -all the other physical mechanics of the universe - declare the glory of God with embarrassing effortlessness.
*No self help books to teach them "10 ways to glorify God", no hectoring pastors or fire-and-brimstone church elders, no need for reminders or post-it notes with "Glorify God today" scribbled on it.

They just do it.
