  • Witnessing miracles

Literally, to glorify God is to parade God’s character traits to others.

Moses asked to see God’s glory (33:18).  God promised to show Moses His goodness, authority, grace, and compassion (33:19).  When the event occurred, God proclaimed His compassion, grace, patience, lovingkindness, faithfulness, forgiveness, and justice (34:6 – 7).  When we see a manifestation of the character of God, we should announce it to others.
