(Proverbs 15:3 KJV) The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
This is one of the foundations of Christian culture. America used to be like this. People were aware that God was watching at all times. Your parents might not know. Your spouse might not know. Your friends might not know. But God sees all. Think about how this would effect behavior if we truly believed it. We would not bother stopping to look around to see if anyone was watching. We would know God was on the alert. It would tend to cause us to live at a higher level.
I don’t know where this started to break down. Perhaps it was the publishing of the song, “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.” Remember how he “sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake...” If Santa is watching it is better than worrying about God. After all, we had all those years when we were real stinkers and Santa did not seem to notice.
Whenever it started to change, it is in full flood now. “Prove it!” is now the cry. Confessed criminals are set free on technicalities. Judgments are based on filling out the right papers, not truth. The law is not based on what the law says but on what a judge feels it should say. Where are the eyes of God?
If you are a follower of Jesus you must remind yourself that God sees all. There is no way you can fool Him. He does not play games. Was there anything you did yesterday that you would have done differently if you had been thinking about this? Today is the time to change that kind of thinking.
