Enough is Enough! Daily Meditation Moment

“But is it he who they’re hurting?” God’s decree! “Aren’t they just hurting themselves? Exposing themselves shamefully? Making themselves ridiculous?” Jeremiah 7:19 (The Message Bible)
Have you ever done anything so stupid that you were glad no one was watching? It happens to all of us—just the degree of the ridiculous acts varies. If the people of Judah thought God wasn’t watching them as they worshipped false gods in the temple built to honor him, and other despicable things, then they were badly mistaken. God sees everything.
One of my friends told her teenage daughter before she went out on a date, “Remember, God is watching everything you do!” For the daughter, this became a form of birth control. I know God is watching me, too, but it is so easy to forget when I get caught up in my own desires. God knows we can’t be perfect all the time (thanks to Adam and Eve), and that’s where grace and forgiveness comes in. But one never knows when God may say, “Enough of your bad behavior.”
Dear God, help me to think of you before I do something to shame you and me. Amen.
