Character

Dear Diary,

Character is revealed by what you do in secret.  What you do when no one is looking is what you truly are.  Yet, God is looking and He sees all.  Not one thought you think nor one word you speak is hidden from God.  “There is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether” (Psalm 139:4).  What occupies your mind?  What do you think on, look at, or watch?  Whatever it is, it shall someday all be revealed.  “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:14).  I often wonder what people do with their time.  Unfortunately, in today’s world with all our electronic devices and social media, lost are the days of silence, solitude and quite meditation.  But regardless of what you do, God sees it all.

Thought for Today:  May we keep our minds on good and godly things and do that which is pleasing unto the Lord, revealing godly character.
