I Keep Seeing SDG on Your Pages
What does it mean?
Johann Sebastian Bach, who had a clear view of God’s calling in his life, lived, worked, and composed for the glory of God. If anyone had a right to boast about his accomplishments, it was him. He came from a long line of musicians and achieved praise in his lifetime and lasting acclaim after. Yet at the end of every masterpiece he sketched the letters SDG, which stands for. “Soli Deo Gloria” – to God alone be glory.
I believe we too can experience the joy of using the abilities God has given each of us us to fulfill Christ’s significant purpose in our lives.
A friend I know once defined “humility” for me this way: Being willing to be known for the abilities God has given you and not claiming to have other abilities.
I’m better at some things than I am at others.
For the things I’m not yet very good at,
“He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it.” (Phil 1:6 KJV)
For the things I’m good at
“Soli Deo Gloria” – to God alone be glory.
