Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Did you realize that the first clothing was designed to be camouflage? Adam and Eve hoped their fig leaves would let them blend into their surroundings and hide them from God. It seems ridiculous, but sometimes we do the same thing. Do any of these sound familiar?
Woman 1: So . . . I made a little mistake.
Man: That temper just runs in the family.
Woman 2: Everybody cuts a few corners.
Nancy: Our natural tendency is to make excuses, to cover up our sin and make ourselves look better than we are, but God sees it all. He asked Adam and Eve, “Where are you?” Of course, He knew where they were and what they’d done. But He was giving them a chance to admit their sin. And He gives us the same chance.
When God convicts you of sin, are you honest, or do you try to hide from Him? Remember what Jesus said in Luke chapter 12, “Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known” (v. 2).
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
