I saw an article the other day. The headline read “Can God be glorified in a business meeting?”
Can we glorify God by the simple, mundane task of doing the business of the church? Sometimes it’s about how to do some small thing…sometimes it’s a bigger issue. Is he glorified by the process of naming elders, or deacons, or trustees? I’ve been to church board meetings that went on for far too long. Sometimes, some very trivial things can be hashed over ad nauseum…….
Do we glorify God EVEN in a simple meeting to decide what to do with an issue in the church?
Yes---we can. Today, we see that. The apostles had a decision to make, and we can see how they approached it, and what that said about their attitude toward God.
