Seeing Life Differently
Today’s reading: 2 Samuel 1:1-3:21
We were created in God’s image to glorify Him. Whatever does not glorify Him is not only counter to His purpose for us, it is sin. [See Romans 3:23]. As we consider our lifestyles and decisions, we ought to always be asking ourselves, “what will glorify God?”
In today’s reading, the unnamed Amalekite seems to have been thinking, “what will glorify me?” He paid for this way of thinking with his life because David saw life differently – through the lens of God’s glory.
