    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:31

    Pues si comis, o si bebis, o hacis otra cosa, hacedlo todo para la gloria de Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 10:31

    Verse 31. Whether therefore ye eat, or drink] As no
    general rule can be laid down in reference to the above particulars, there is one maxim of which no Christian must lose sight-that whether he eats or drinks of this or the other kind of aliments, or whatever else he may do, he must do it so as to bring glory to God. This is a sufficient rule to regulate every man's conscience and practice in all indifferent things, where there are no express commands or prohibitions.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 31. Whether therefore ye eat or drink , etc.] Which may principally refer to eating things sacrificed to
    idols, and drinking the libations of wine offered to them, since this is the subject of the apostles discourse; in doing of which he directs them to have the glory of God in view, and so to conduct, that that end may be answered: and it may also be applied to common eating and drinking, or to ordinary meals upon food, about which there is no dispute; and which common actions of life are done to the glory of God, when every mercy is considered and owned as coming from him; and when we confess ourselves unworthy of any; and when we ascribe all we have to the free and unmerited goodness of God; and enjoy every mercy of this kind, as a fruit of our Fathers love to us, as a blessing of the covenant, and as coming to us through the blood of Christ; when we are contented and satisfied with what we have, and act faith continually on God for future fresh supplies, and give thanks for all we receive: and if this, then much more eating and drinking in an ordinance way should be directed to the glory of God and Christ, as eating the bread, and drinking the wine in the Lords supper; and which is so done, when it is done in a decent and reverend manner, in the exercise of faith, discerning the Lords body, eating his flesh, and drinking his blood in a spiritual manner, without dependence on the actions done, and in remembrance of the love of God and Christ. Or whatsoever ye do ; in a natural, civil, or religious respect, in preaching, hearing, praying, fasting, giving of alms, etc. whatever in the closet, in the family, in the church, or in the world, in private, or in public: do all to the glory of God ; Gods glory is the end of all his works and actions; in creation, providence, and grace; in election, in the covenant, in the blessings and promises of it, in redemption, in the effectual calling, and in bringing many sons to glory. The same is the end of all Christs actions, as man and Mediator, of his doctrines and miracles, of his obedience, sufferings, and death in this world, and of his interceding life in the other; who, as he lives to make intercession for us, lives unto God, to the glory of God; and therefore the glory of God should be the end of all our actions: besides, without this no action can be truly called a good one; if a man seeks himself, his own glory, and popular applause, or has any sinister and selfish end in view in what he does, it cannot be said, nor will it be accounted by God to be a good action. The Jews have a saying much like this, ym l wyhy y[m lk let all thy works be done to the glory of God f206 ; which one of their commentators explains thus: even when thou art employed in eating and drinking, and in the business of life, thou shalt not design thy bodily profit, but that thou mayest be strong to do the will of thy Creator.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-33 - There were
    cases wherein Christians might eat what had been offered to idols, without sin. Such as when the flesh was sold in the market a common food, for the priest to whom it had been given. But a Christia must not merely consider what is lawful, but what is expedient, and to edify others. Christianity by no means forbids the common offices of kindness, or allows uncourteous behaviour to any, however they ma differ from us in religious sentiments or practices. But this is not to be understood of religious festivals, partaking in idolatrous worship According to this advice of the apostle, Christians should take car not to use their liberty to the hurt of others, or to their ow reproach. In eating and drinking, and in all we do, we should aim a the glory of God, at pleasing and honouring him. This is the great en of all religion, and directs us where express rules are wanting. holy, peaceable, and benevolent spirit, will disarm the greates enemies __________________________________________________________________

    10:31 {To the
    glory of God} (eis doxan qeou). this is the ruling motive in the Christian's life, not just having his own way about whims and preferences.
