AMDG : “Ad majorem Dei gloriam" – For the greater glory of God
It is hard to write a page to describe oneself. As Kierkegaard said, “life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards." To understand life, reflection is a must. But at the same time, to live life, stepping forward is what has to be done. And to live a Christian life – which means a life like Christ – requires remembering the moto and the goal of life: “ad majorem Dei gloriam" – for the greater glory of God.
Johann Sebastian Bach often signs his own works with AMDG besides his name. That’s why he’s called a composer of God.
In the same way all Christians should compose their lives – with AMDG stamped on everything we do.
