The ultimate Bible hack
Our challenge is that life is busy and the Bible is complicated. So how can we allow a complicated book guide our busy lives when time is so short? Enter the ultimate Bible hack.
A “hack” is another term for a skill, shortcut, or trick that allows you to increase efficiency and productivity. IOW, it saves you time.
Here’s the ultimate Bible hack. And it works in virtually every situation. (I’m not suggesting that you discontinue Bible reading and study, but sometimes you need a quick solution.) Here it is:
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31)
That’s it. Whatever you do, do it for the glory of God. Do it so that God’s reputation and honor are increased. Whatever you do, including business decisions, meeting agendas, parenting conversations, entertainment choices, social media habits, eating decisions, texts and phone calls, email commitments, etc. In any and every situation, the very simple yet very profound Bible hack is to do it in such a way that God comes out looking good.
There’s much more to the Bible than that. But if we start there, the rest will begin to make more sense when we finally have some time to dig in.
Try it for one week. Set a reminder for first thing in the morning to prompt you to approach that day with this hack. And set a reminder for the end of the day to think back on how you did. Feel free to share your results in the space below. Or not. Only do it if God’s gonna look better.
