STOP AND THINK – The measure of a man’s character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out. (Baron Thomas Babington Macauley, 19th century British historian)
Remember when you were a child and you wanted to do something you knew would displease your parents? Where did you do it? Certainly not in front of them! Why is it that when we are tempted to do something we know is wrong, we try to hide? We don’t want to be seen. The person of character realizes that such hidden activity is always wrong.
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. (John 3:19)
