09/25/08 - Hiding

Have you ever considered that if you have to do something in secret or hiding it from others, chances are you shouldn't be doing it? (I am not talking about planning a surprise party here!)

I mean if you have to sneak on the Internet at work when your boss isn't around, chances are you shouldn't be on. If you have to hid e-mails from the people closest to you, chances are you shouldn't be having those e-mail conversations. If you have to hid what you eat, chances are you shouldn't be eating it. If you have to hid what you're reading, chances are you shouldn't be reading that book. If you're having a conversation with someone that needs to remain hidden, chances are you shouldn't be saying whatever it is you're saying.

Remember we are walking through our lives for an audience of One!

That is a good indication that you need to take a careful look at what you are doing, but I am glad that you said "chances are you shouldn't be" because we hide things for many reasons. One of the major reasons is because we know it's wrong, but there are other reasons as well.

Good post.

It's funny-- where I work we are able to get online during the day, and yet if you go around and see someone online they hide what they're doing.

Even when permission is given, there is still a feeling of guilt.

That's why I said "Chances are". Things like this are not black and white!

Great Post Heather. It happens to me sometimes. Our God is watching the good and evil makers.

God bless you
