Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God

SDG BachThe composer Johann Sebastian Bach famously used to write the initials SDG (Soli Deo Gloria) at the beginning and end of many of his compositions.

Where would we look for a modern equivalent of that brief but weighty eighteenth century inscription? The Oscar acceptance speech of a Best Supporting Actress (“I want to thank God and my manicurist”)? The goal celebrations of a Brazilian footballer? Episcopal mumbo-jumbo at the Palio di Siena horserace?

Here is something which impressed me today: a five-minute video of Jonny Last doing parkour and then talking simply about one of his favourite Bible verses, 1 Corinthians 10:31: “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
