let your light shine...

Have you ever done some random act of kindness and, when thanked, wanted to give God the glory verbally, but refrained because it would sound too contrived? Or held your tongue, because it might give the impression that God needs people to work to gain him glory?

Is it a cop out to just do the deeds and pray that God would receive the glory that is rightfully his?

Hi Jenna-

Yes, to the first 2 q's. I think it's always a good idea to pray God gets all the glory and also pray for a way to verbally turn all the glory to Him. I'm saying this as a compulsive analyzer & totally feel your struggle.

I say, turn the glory to God in some verbal way when possible, and if someone else thinks it sounds too contrived, you really can't help that. It's their deal (I mean that more kindly than it sounds).

By the way, I don't think I ever said,"thank you" for bringing us dinner after Olivia was born...so, thank you, two years later :) It was meat with gravy. And evidence of God working through you!

Love,
