We Ought Not To Live To Ourselves

Schütt Helping grandpa 1892Hugh Binning Works, p. 5:

Now, seeing God hath made all things for himself, and especially man for his own glory, that he may show forth in him the glory and excellence of his power, goodness, holiness, justice, and mercy; it is not only most reasonable that man should do all things that he doth to the glory of God, but it is even the beauty and perfection of a man, – the greatest accession that can be to his being, – to glorify God by that being. We are not our own, therefore we ought not to live to ourselves, but to God whose we are.
