It is interesting to read stories of bumbling criminals who make obvious mistakes that lead to their capture, like those who mistakenly leave a piece of paper with their name and address at the scene of the crime.
I recently watched a news story that told how officials are catching many people who hunt illegally because the offenders post on social media pictures of themselves posing with their ill-gotten gain. They can’t keep from boasting about what they have killed, and their pride leads to their capture.
Whether you brag about it or not, your sin will catch up with you in the end. Rather than try to get away with our sin, it is better to confess it and turn it over to Jesus, because you can’t get anything past God!
“Evildoers are snared by their own sin, but the righteous shout for joy and are glad.”—Proverbs 29:6
