The Glory of God in the Wrath of God

Consider this: Is it true that every good thing glorifies God? Could there be a good thing that does not glorify God? "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)

What do we say then to God's wrath poured out on the unrighteous? We may see that the unrighteous may prosper for a time or that the righteous may suffer, but God's wrath may poured out on people that they may turn to him and his judgment is certain for eternity.

Therefore, if any are righteous, though they suffer for a time, we will see God's grace and he will be glorified. And if any are unrighteous, though some prosper for a time we will see God's wrath and judgment and he will be glorified.

Nevertheless, it's for better for us to seek after righteousness that God may be glorified in his grace toward us than for him to be glorified in his wrath against us.
