What Would He Think?

A mother lectured her daughter about how important it was to keep family secrets private. One day she got in trouble in school and the principle called her mother to give her the information. After scolding the girl, she said, "Now you must go to your room and ask God to forgive you."

Later, when the family sat down for dinner she asked, "Sara, did you ask God to forgive you?" "No, Mom, I didn't,” said Sara. "I knew that you wouldn't want Him to know about any family scandals!"

Job, on one occasion said, "He sees everything I do and every step I take." He had no doubt that all of our lives are lived before God and that He is aware of everything that we do – whether good or evil. Nothing that we ever do will escape His notice because nothing can be hidden from Him. As Job was speaking of the life He lived in the presence of God, he said that he had not committed any sin in his heart against his neighbor or against His God.

Prayer: Help us to realize, Lord, that we cannot hide anything from You and to live lives free of sin. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture: Job 31:3-4
