Theme: WE SHALL ALL REAP WHAT WE SOW

Text: ”For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known”- Luke 12:2.

 

Comment: A person may do some good but his intention may be otherwise. For example, a man may be giving assistance to his neighbour and offering gifts to him and his wife as a friend, but his intention may be to seduce his neighbour’s wife. Though by human considerations he is regarded as a kind man, but God knows that he is a mischievous character.  St. Paul stated: “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: But all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do” – Hebrews 4:13.  See also 2 Chronicles 16:9; Jeremiah 23:24.

One who is a wizard or witch engaged in wicked practices may appear to men as a good Christian, but he or she is completely exposed before the eyes of the Almighty God. So too an unfaithful woman or man who indulges in  adultery  secretly may appear to be a good housewife or husband but every secret is known to God.  Even the thoughts of the hearts of men are well known to Him, as it is written: “I the LORD search the heart; I try the reins, even to give every man  according  to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”- Jeremiah 17:10
