Numbers 32:1-42; Proverbs 28:1-28; Luke 4:1-15

That all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 1 Samuel 17:46

David’s sincere desire, in this battle with Goliath, was to prove to all the earth that there is a God in Israel. He didn’t seek praise. He wanted to glorify God. The Lord Jesus had that same desire: “Father, glorify thy name” (John 12:28). We can glorify God by bearing “much fruit” (John 15:8). Do we constantly desire to glorify God in every way? Or is it more important to have our own way? —Mary Robins

Oh, may my life be to Thy praise O Father,
In all I do, may Thou be magnified;
Thou chosest me before the world’s foundation,
Thine own to be, that Thou be glorified. —Astrid H. Nelson
