In our second reading, St. Paul tells us to do everything–even such simple acts as eating and drinking–for the glory of God. We should make sure that the light shines, not on us, but on God. And here’s the wonderful paradox: since God needs nothing, whatever we give to him comes back magnified to us. This is why the saints shine with a special radiance, a luminosity greater than anything they could have produced on their own.
