To Glorify Others

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children. - Ephesians 5:1

The Holy Spirit will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. - John 16:14
Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. - John 17:1

Today as we think about the way that God lives within God’s own self, we’re looking at this idea of glorifying others - of lifting them up, encouraging them, making them brighter and bigger and better. Our goal, again, is to imitate God. And since this is what God does, then this is what we get to do!

Take a minute to reflect on what the life of God might be like with all of this mutual-glorifying. Does it bring a sense of awe or wonder or something else to mind? Hold on to that today.

And then also think about what it might look like to bring glory to someone else today. Obviously we’re not talking about doing this in inappropriate ways by inflating the egos of others. Instead, think about the ways that you can bring attention to the goodness of others today.
