Found Out

Read Numbers 32:1 through 36:13

Michael was busily destroying zombies in his favorite video game when his cell phone flashed a text message: “Did you finish the book yet? Remember our report is due tomorrow.” His fingers swiftly replied, “Nah, I’m good. I grabbed the CliffsNotes.” He ignored the disapproving emoticon that popped up. He figured he could stay up late to write a quick report.

“But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the Lord; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23).

Just as Michael was doing only enough to get by in school, the people of God are often tempted to give less than their best efforts to Him. Even worse, some try to live with the outward appearance of godliness while secretly playing games with sin.

God’s plans are good. Those who want to live in His blessing must maintain their relationship with Jesus. Faithfulness is an important part of that. When Christians are unfaithful, life can degrade to less than God desire’s for them. Sooner or later, everyone notices.

Thought for Today:

God is watching.
