Who will know?

Luke 12:2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. (AV)

One of the thoughts that often accompany temptation is the idea that no one will ever know. How far from the truth! These words of Jesus tell us that everyone will know. That in itself ought to be a deterrent to sin. At first glance this may seem cruel, but I have noticed over the years that hidden sin is like a fire in your pocket. It’s not comfortable. No matter how embarrassed one is at the moment, it always feels better to have it out in the open with trusted friends and ministries to help deal with our weaknesses. There is nothing more to hide and we can get on with life. We are also in a position to receive help and encouragement to overcome our faults when others are aware of them.
