The events of the past week illustrate that we tend to do things if no one is watching. When the bombs at the Boston Marathon went off, one of the first comments I heard was, “With all the cameras in place, and all the cell phones with cameras, it should not take long to identify the perpetrators.”
I wonder if the two brothers, who were quickly identified and pursued, even thought about the abundance of cameras. I wonder if they thought about the consequences.
It all reminds me of the verse in Numbers 32:23 (KJV) which says, “…be sure your sin will find you out.” Sobering.
God’s camera is always on. He never misses a thing. When you displayed a bad attitude at work or towards your boss, He saw it.
Sure, you may pull off your sinful act, and you may even attend a party that evening, but you will never get away. Oh, perhaps for a time. Maybe for a long time.
But one day you will be exposed, because God’s camera is always on!
