The Hidden Sin

hidden sinThis short story reminds me about the hidden sin. We cannot hide from God no matter how we try; For He knows all we think and do— we can’t escape His eye. —Hess   Sin may be hidden from others, but never from God.  

Chuck had slowed to a stop when his car was hit from behind and was pushed into the vehicle ahead of him. A sickening, crunching sound indicated that additional vehicles had collided behind them.

As Chuck sat quietly for a moment, he observed that the vehicle directly behind him was pulling out into traffic. Obviously hoping to avoid an encounter with police, the escaping driver neglected to notice he had left something behind. When the police arrived, an officer picked up the hit-and-run driver’s license plate from the ground and said to Chuck, “Someone will be waiting for him when he arrives home. He won’t get away with this.”

Scripture tells us: “Be sure your sin will find you out” (Num. 32:23), as this man who fled the accident discovered. We may sometimes be able to hide our sin from the people around us, but nothing is ever “hidden from God’s sight” (Heb. 4:13). He sees each of our failures, thoughts, and motivations (1 Sam. 16:7; Luke 12:2-3).

Believers are given a wonderful promise: “If we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). So don’t let unconfessed, so-called “hidden” sins come between you and God (vv.6-7).

My white Lily has bloomed

LilyThis morning, before I go to the office, I take my time for a while to look at my garden. And I was very surprised because one of my favorite flowers was blooming. White Casablanca Lily. I am so happy for it. Thank you God. A new life was begun.

White Lily is symbol of Devotion, Friendship, Sympathy, Dignity, Purity, and Holiness.

“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. ( Luke 12:27)
