Today's Daily Encounter

Consequences of Sin

“I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light
around me to become night--but even in darkness I
cannot hide from You [God]. To You the night shines as
bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to
You."1

I have read how, “Two fellows were driving a delivery
truck down a road when they came to a tunnel. The sign
above said: ‘Warning: Maximum Height 10 feet zero
inches,’ so they got out and measured their
truck. Unfortunately, the truck was just over 12 feet
high.

“They didn't know what to do, when finally one of them
looked in both directions and said, ‘I don't see any
police, let's go for it!’"

The result was obvious.

I guess far too many of us knew very well we shouldn’t
do a certain thing or commit a certain sin, but we did
it anyhow because we thought no one was watching.

We may not have seen the immediate effects but we
always reap what we sow--even if it is eventually.
Furthermore, acting wrong too often because no one is
watching can easily become a habit.

As George Dana Boardman wisely said, "Sow an act ...
reap a habit; Sow a habit ... reap a character; Sow a
character ... reap a destiny."

The reality is that we can never hide from God. He sees
all. He knows all. And He judges all unless we confess
our sins and receive His forgiveness. As God’s Word
also says, “Be sure your sin will find you out."2

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me always to
be honest with myself and with You and always do good
and refrain from doing bad, not because anyone is
watching or not watching, but because I believe in
doing right and living in harmony with Your will. Thank
You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in
Jesus’s name, amen."

1. Psalm 139:11-12 (NLT).
2. Numbers 32:23

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
