Before God

If you mistreat my daughters or take other wives, though no one is with us, understand that God will be a witness between you and me. – Genesis 31:50

Have you truly comprehended the sobering truth that your entire life is lived before God?

My wife has been a witness to over 41 years of my life. My mother was a witness to another 17, but there are plenty of moments within my 61+ years when neither my wife nor my mother were present. My brother and I shared moments that neither one of them experienced (whew!). Of course, others were there … friends, colleagues, teammates … even strangers. Yet even with all of these witnesses, only One saw everything.

God.

Many can testify to a part of your life, but only One can testify to the whole. He is indeed “my Witness” … He is your witness … and He is Judge. He has seen it all with divine clarity and ultimately, it is only His opinion that truly matters. But make no mistake, it matters … a lot.

Before God we are all equally wise – and equally foolish. – Albert Einstein
