“Did you play more video games at work today?”
“No, my boss was looking over my shoulder all day.”
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: When someone’s watching you, it has a way of affecting your behavior. We tend to be better behaved when we’re with other people than when we’re alone. But the apostle Paul reminds us that we’re never truly alone. In 1 Timothy 5 he says, “I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions.”
In other words, Jesus is watching. God is watching, and angels are watching. That should encourage us to obey.
So the next time you find yourself alone and you’re tempted to sin, remember that you’re really not alone. Even when it seems like no one else is around, you’re still accountable to God. And He sees everything. In fact, that's what it means to live in the fear of the Lord.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
