Manners people. They won’t kill us. Now, we have talked about treating others like the brothers and sisters in Christ that they are. We also know that God watches over us. But would you be ashamed if He was standing right there — right now?
I have a person in my life who is a gossip and just loves to talk about everyone’s tragedies. It’s annoying but I wonder, would she say those things if Jesus was standing, physically standing, right there? I really don’t think so.
If we know that He is always with us — why do we act like He’s not? I know there have been many, many times in my life that I have not been on my best behavior. And what is good behavior? Being the person that God knows you can be.
Maybe we should start acting as we say we believe. And the next time you want to gossip, remember Jesus can hear you. And the next time your behavior is not what it should be, remember Jesus can see you. Cowboy up, and be the person that Jesus knows you can be.
Peace be with you.
