Loving One Another

To God Be the Glory!


Have you read Rick Warren’s “Purpose Driven Life”?

I have read it several times – and completed the “Daily Inspirations for the Purpose Driven Life” that accompanies it. In it, Rick Warren highlights scripture to go with each chapter, and then has a page reserved for the readers’ Reflections.

In the chapter titled, “The Reason for Everything,” Romans 11:36 is one of the reflective quotes: “Everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by His power, and everything is for His glory.”

That quote prompted me to write the following acrostic.

Join me by reading it aloud  –  add plenty of enthusiasm!

Reading vertically, you can see that it says, “Glory to God – Praise Him!”

G ive all glory to the
L ord – to God Almighty! 
O n this day, praise Him!
R each out to others with
Y our whole heart, and love
T hy neighbor as thyself.
O n this day, Trust Him.
G ive what you have.
O ur gifts from God
D o not belong to us.
P ossessions are just things.
R esources are
A lways for sharing.
I nstead of hoarding and
S aving for yourself, know
E verything on earth is temporary.
H eaven is eternal.
I n His name, for His sake,
M agnify His name.

  1. This acrostic reminds me of the preacher’s words: “Vanity upon vanity, all is vanity.”
    Thanks for sharing. God bless you!

  2. Oh no, of course not!
    Your post reminded me that I’m focusing on the things that don’t matter – things that are only temporary – instead of focusing on the things that truly matter, like building a relationship with God.

  3. This is absolutely beautifully written inspiring! Such a on time reminder!
