Someone once told me that a good test of whether something is true or worthwhile is to ask, "Does it give glory to God?" If you're not sure whether a particular theology or idea is true, ask yourself if it gives glory to God? If it does, it's probably true. If it doesn't, then it's probably a bit dodgy. For example, some people argue that the world was literally created in six days while others suggest that it is symbolic. It gives God more glory if it was literally six days so I'd rather err on that side of the argument.
If you're not sure whether to do something or not, ask yourself, does it give glory to God? If it makes God look good - go for it. If it doesn't make God look good, you might want to rethink your actions. For example, you're not sure whether to join in the underage drinking at a party or not. If you drink you're no different to everyone else and may make some poor choices as a result. But if you don't drink, you give God glory by doing what's right and being prepared to stand out from the crowd.
