It’s Better to Be Open
When you sin – whether anyone sees it or not – damage is done to yourself and all of creation. Also, the good you do brings goodness, regardless of who sees.
Everything we do receives punishment or reward. Whether someone knows about it, isn’t relevant.
If you plant an evil seed, evil will grow. What if you didn’t know it was evil? It still grows. It’s the same for good. Sometimes we succeed, because we’re unknowingly doing what works.
We reap whatever we sow.
1 Timothy 5 teaches, “Remember, the sins of some people are obvious, leading them to certain judgment. But there are others whose sins will not be revealed until later.”
Look for leader candidates who live open and upright. They’re more concerned with what’s right, than how they appear.
