In 1 Corinthians 10:31, Paul said “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Really? Whatever you do? Is that possible? Did Paul really mean to glorify God in every little thing we do? I think that’s exactly what he meant.
Take sleep for example. The most inactive thing we do. When we think something is easy, we say, “Pshh. I can do that in my sleep!”, because if you can do something in your sleep, you can do it under any circumstance. Glorify God while you’re unconscious. OK….
So many times we have trouble sleeping because of stress, anger, and fear. God tells us over and over, “Don’t worry”, “Forgive”, “Fear not”. Why? Because He knows our needs, He has forgiven us, and He is watching out for us. There is always a reason to stress, be angry, or be afraid. But! If you lay down at night, in the face of your problems, knowing that God knows your needs, has forgiven you, and is watching out for you, and you sleep peacefully because of that, He is glorified even in your sleep.
If you can sleep to the glory of God, you can do “whatever” to the glory of God.
