Practical Ways To Give God The Glory

All glory goes to God! But what does that mean, and how do you go about giving the glory to God? Glory is honor, credit, and adoration. Giving God the glory is a way to honor him, and here are some practical ways to give God the glory in your everyday life.

If you’ve ever watched a football game or an award show, you’ve probably seen a public gesture where the athlete points to the sky. He or she is thanking God and declaring that it would not have been possible without God. The glory goes to God.

I know you’ve seen me end my posts with, To God Goes The Glory. That is my public gesture of thanking God and declaring that it would not have been possible without Him. But, since most of you aren’t prime athletes or publishing articles on the internet, how can you give God the glory publically?

Give God The Glory With Your Words

The tongue is the hardest muscle to control. I remember years ago making the conscious decision not to say a cuss word. Cussing can almost be an art form for some people, and they find it difficult to say a sentence without one or two cuss words. Cussing has become so normal that it is almost celebrated. You will find videos of small children cussing like a sailor even though they have no idea what they are doing. Coffee mugs and t-shirts proudly display, “I love Jesus, but I cuss a little.” I want to be more like Jesus, and I can’t see Him cussing.

Ephesians 4:29

29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Give God The Glory With Your Actions

Actions speak louder than words. There were many times when how I acted didn’t match up with what I said. I remember as a child hearing the phrase, “Do as I say, not as I do,” and being confused about what that meant. I understand now, and I realize that acting in ways that are unpleasing to God is not glorifying Him.

Colossians 3:17

17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Give God The Glory With Your Body

Your body is a gift from God. They are the temples, the vessels in which the Holy Spirit resides. We should make sure that we keep our bodies as pure as possible. Practicing self-care through diet, exercise, hygiene, getting enough sleep, and avoiding harmful substances ensures that our bodies are healthy and able to serve and honor the Lord.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

We don’t have to be athletes, or award-winning celebrities to practice giving God the glory. Let you actions speak louder than your words, and let your words sing of God’s praise.


Have A Blessed Day!

  1. This is SO, SO GOOD!!!!!!

  2. There’s also the one about just saying yes and no. I forgot which gospel. Cussing is something I have to keep working to eliminate. If I get real frustrated a cuss word will slip out. I’m learning to use “for crying aloud”. That’s real old school.

  3. Thank you for your post today, Tania. As believers we all need to remember those 3 points. We are to spend our lives glorifying our Lord.

  4. Absolutely Beautiful post Tania!!! Some of those things are easier said than done! We are all sinners, and all works in progress! Thank you for the gentle reminder ❤️❤️❤️ I hope the west was just beautiful!!!

  5. Lovely Sunday post, Tania. Thank you!

  6. Thank you for these beautiful passages and the beautiful way you expressed the meaning.
    I truly needed this today because of a terrible tragedy in our family. One that can not be changed but pray that this person is t total peace, which he truly deserves. 😢

  7. Sometimes I forget that 1 size doesn’t fit all on the needs of those around me. I am reminded to be a better listener than a talker. Thanks for the reminder!

  8. Tania, I love you daily posts and enjoy the clothing you share. It does help guide us as we are aging. Today, I especially enjoyed your scriptures and explanations of how us average people can give God the glory.

    Have a blessed day!

  9. Amen! Thank you for posting and giving our Lord His Due..🙏

  10. Thanks for another wonderful Sunday post. You have blessed my day.

  11. I’m so glad that you devote time to give God all the glory He deserves. That makes your blog so much more special!

  12. Excellent post! I needed to hear that!

  13. Ginger Hiller says:

    Thank you for this kind reminder! I know that I can make some adjustments in my life. I am very uncomfortable being around people that cuss so freely, even in front of children. And then I hear their children using some of the cuss words, and even though they have gotten in trouble in school for saying those words, the parents keep right on saying them. Such a sad and vicious cycle.

  14. Love this post! Thank you.

  16. I am saving your post and sharing it with my ladies bible study group. thank you.

  17. Tania,
    This post is print worthy.
    Wonderful reminders, to give “God glory in all things”. These words are above the alter at my parish church, yet I am not sure I am fully practicing giving glory to God on the daily. Thank you.

  18. Wonderful lesson as always. Thank you , Tania!

    Lovely. Thank you for the reminder. You are so right. Curse words have become the norm and accepted these days. I find myself saying words I would have never uttered years ago. Maybe not publicly but privately. Thank you for pointing that out. It will serve as a reminder to me when I am tempted to follow like sheep and utter words that I should be ashamed of. To God goes the Glory.

  21. Good post Tania. I made a decision several years back to take cuss words out too. I didn’t cuss a lot, but enough to realize it wasn’t acceptable. Unfortunately life happens and I find myself throwing a few here and there – then feel guilty and beat myself up! I’ll do better!

  22. Linda Shipe says:

    Thank you for this beautiful post.

    Tania: I came across your website about 3-4 weeks ago to get ideas on dressing stylish and signed up for your email posts. Kept receivng your daily messages and fell in love with your expressiveness especially because you added Christian quotes and scriptures. I am 69 years old, live in Texas, and a breast cancer survivor now for 38 years. Praise God! I love Jesus as I made him my Lord & Saviour many years ago. Thank you for being you and providing inspiration in this time and age when it is so badly needed with all the division and anger that exists. Please keep doing what your’re doing! You are beautiful and a model of hope!! I thank God for sending messengers and warriors such as yourself and “TO GOD GOES THE GLORY” indeed!!

  24. You are a blessing, and you do give God the glory!
    I love that. It makes a difference Tania❤️

    All glory to God!

  26. Cheryll Sampson says:

    Your post is so needed in this day when people seem to be so selfish and to have forgotten the blessings of God. I read all your posts and appreciate them so much.

  27. My son told me I was critical and I should only say neutral or positive comments about others. No orders to other adults, only suggestions.
    Now I read here Ephesians 4:29. Yup!
    Thanks, Tania. Have a blessed day.

  28. Bridgette Mauter says:
