1 Peter 4: 8-11

What does "doing good" look like

God’s goal in all he does is to receive praise for the glory of his name.

Isaiah 48:11

Jeremiah 13:11

Eph 1:5-6

Eph 1:12

Eph 1:14

2 Thessalonians 1:10

That doesn't seem right to us we don't value that trait in others. People who seek praise:

          • Want to be affermed by others to make up for something lacking in themselfs They don't do something for it's own merits they do it allways with the thought of getting praise from men
          • Want only to seek praise for themselfs at the expence of anyone else. They are selfish and unloving

But God is not man He is holy (unique, set apart) God has:

  • infinite wisdom
  • infinate power
  • and infinate beauty

so He seeks praise for the glory of His name by giving the most loving and good thing there is

HIMSELF Revelation 5:11-13 Psm 16:11

And that is exactly what He did in sending His Son Eph 2:18 and 1Peter 3:18

  • Phil 1:9-11
