Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.—1 Corinthians 10:31.
THY glory alone, O God, be the end of all that I say; Let it shine in every deed, let it kindle the prayers that I pray;
Let it burn in my innermost soul, till the shadow of self pass away, And the light of Thy glory, O God, be unveiled in the dawning of day. FREDERICK GEORGE SCOTT.
IT excepts nothing, “do all”; it instances only the very least things, what our Lord includes under “daily bread,” that so we may stop at nothing short of all, but our whole being, doing, thinking, willing, longing, having, loving, may be
wrapt up, gathered, concentrated, in the One Will and Good Pleasure of our God. Does any again ask how can such little things be done to the glory of God? Do them as thou wouldest do them if thou sawest Christ by thee. EDWARD B. PUSEY.
The time of labor does not with me differ from the time of prayer; and, in the noise and confusion of the kitchen where I am at work, while several persons are at the same time calling for different things, I possess God in as great tranquillity as if I were upon my knees at the Blessed Sacrament. BROTHER LAWRENCE.
