A God-Honoring Man

Read the Bible in a year by reading Judges 8 and 9 today.
Gideon truly desired to honor God. After Gideon led Israel successfully against Midian, the Israelites offered to make him the ruler of Israel, but he refused, saying, “I will not rule over you, nor shall my son rule over you; the LORD shall rule over you” (Judges 8:23). What an opportunity Gideon turned down! He wanted what was best for Israel and that was to remind Israel that Yahweh God was their ruler. Gideon could have taken advantage of the situation, but he did not, giving God the glory.
How can you give God the glory today?
