Edifier du Jour-Proverbs 15:3(NASB)
The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Watching the evil and the good.
This isn't an overly profound verse, but one that struck me today. We have a tendency to be more prone to sin when we're by ourselves. Things we wouldn't do or say in a crowd or with even one other person can become fair game. That little devil on the shoulder is saying "C'mon, no one's watching. You'll get away with it." No, because God's in the house, regardless of when or where. Yes, we know in theory that God's omniscient, and we chuckle thinking of the Christmas ditty
He knows when you are sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows when you've been bad or good, so be good, for goodness sake.
Do we really live that out? Do we live like we know that He's got it all down on tape? Not as much as we'd like to admit. [update 4:45PM- Jeffery Collins elaborates Yep-it's more than just having God watching, it's greiving God and disobeying him]
