Jim Warren draws a weekly cartoon for the Lexington Herald-Leader called “Loose Change”. One of his recent cartoons pictured 3 office workers delivering some news to their boss—“Hackers got into the computer system and tried to steal all our valuable secrets. Luckily, we don’t have any.”
We may have secrets that we keep from other people, but when it comes to secrets from God, we don’t have any. God knows everything about us—both the good and the bad—and he loves us anyway. In fact, God doesn’t want us to even try to keep secrets from him. He wants us to be honest and straightforward with him, even when we mess up.
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”—1 John 1:8-9.
