The scripture for today, October 11 (10/11), is Psalm 10:11 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“He says to himself, ‘God has forgotten; he covers his face and never sees.’ “
You believe in God in some form. And you believe that God knows what you do. But do you sometimes bury your beliefs in your subconscious mind so you can go around doing things you know are wrong? Do you believe you won’t get caught, and you can slide into heaven doing whatever you want?
In other words, do you justify your favorite sins? Do you justify your sins of attitude, such as jealousy, impatience, pride, short temper under the guise of an unhappy childhood, or getting what you deserve? Do you justify your sins of omission ~ good things you should be doing but are not ~ under the excuse that you don’t have time? Do you justify questionable things you do by saying they’re “not so bad” or God is so good, he will forgive anything you do as long as you say you’re sorry each time?
Do you do as children do who cover their eyes so they cannot see anyone and think that, therefore, no one can see them?
God loves you more than you can ever imagine. He never forgets you. He sees and hears everything you do. The only things he does not approve of are things that will ultimately hurt you and which he calls sin.
Here’s a jewel for you. Polish it, shine it up and put it on display: Pleasing your Creator is the ultimate form of pleasing yourself.
