You Can’t Fool God

I read about a man who robbed more than 200 houses. He said that what he did was not wrong because the people he robbed received money from their insurance companies. When we do something wrong, we often make excuses. We try to justify our sins by giving reasons why we did those wrong things.
We might fool some people with our excuses, but we can’t fool God. When we do something wrong, God knows all about us. Verse 15 of our Bible Reading says, “Jesus said to them, ‘You make yourselves look good in front of people. But God knows what is really in your hearts. What people think is important is worth nothing to God.’”
God has blessed us in so many ways! Instead of sinning and making excuses, we should keep close to God and His Word. Stay close to God today. Obey Him. Avoid places and situations that tempt you.
