Someone once said that we treat God like we treat a policeman. When we are driving 70 miles per hour in a 55 miles per hour zone, we don’t want to see a policeman. But when someone is breaking into our house in the middle of the night, we hope that a policeman is nearby!
That is so true! When we are doing something that we aren’t supposed to do—which is far more often than we would like to admit—we hope that God doesn’t notice. However, when we are in need of help, we don’t hesitate to call out to God, asking him to come to our rescue.
We should realize that God is always watching over us, and we should behave accordingly.
“Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!”—James 5:9.
