“Look to the right. Look to the left.If no one is in sight, then steal the watermelon.”
The child rebuked the man with “But Dad, you forgot to look up.”
We tell our children that God can see us everywhere we go.
He can see us in the dark or under the bed. He can see us in a closet. We cannot hide from his eyes.
We lived in the Rio Grande Valley. It was only 7 miles from our house to Mexico.
We noticed a strange mind-set. Some people thought they could cross the border and leave God in Texas.
Little did they know; God is everywhere.. Geographical borders don’t mean a thing to Him.
People do things in Mexico they would never do in their home town where neighbors might see them
“ How do you know me?”, Nathanael asks of Jesus. Jesus told him, “When you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” Nathanael answers, “You are the Son of God!”(John 1)
Whatever went on under the fig tree; whatever he wrestled with, or thought about or talked to God about, no human eye could have known or seen.
The old adage rings true- “Character is what you are in the dark.”
I look to the left and I look to the right. No one can know. Remember the hymn,
“There’s An All Seeing Eye Watching You”—under fig trees, in watermelon patches—and across borders.
He knows when we are struggling. Find your strength. …Look up……
