Do you ever sit and watch people?
Do you ever eavesdrop on the conversations they have?
The other day, while in the process of silently observing people in the PRC, I realized that there must be time when people watch me as well. They examine me from afar. Most of the time I have no idea that they are watching. There are occasions when they watch me respond to challenges in life, aggressive and obnoxious people, and they scrutinize me as I live out my faith.
The train of thought reminded me that I am never out of God’s view. He sees everything that I do. Hears every word out of my mouth and notices how i treat other people. Now, I know that God loves me. He is not trying to find fault. But at the same time, I do want to please Him.
Since there is no hiding from God…no pulling the wool over his eyes…I want the fruit of my life to display the relationship that I have with Him. I want everyone else to recognize the convictions in my heart…most of all, I want him to be pleased with what He sees when He is watching.
