Just a quick note. Isn’t it awesome to catch somebody in the very act of… doing the right thing? There is something that is so admirable about watching somebody have integrity when they think nobody is watching.
It can be the simplest act, but sometimes it’s those things that are just so telling of a person’s character. How are they going to act when nobody (at least to their belief) is watching? If they still do the right thing, simply because it’s the right thing, then that’s something that is rare, and something that I have a tremendous amount of respect for.
And this is something we can’t fake. The only way to be caught doing the right thing is to practice doing the right thing, not to please any person, but to please God, because we know that even if nobody sees us, God does, and He cares. He knows our hearts. Even if we can fool everybody else, we can’t fool Him.
There’s something about catching somebody intentionally living with integrity that just makes you want to reward them. I just love it. When I see it in my family, my friends — even in strangers — it’s just so cool to see somebody, who thinks they are totally alone, still honoring God. You know it’s not an act, but that they are authentic. It’s awesome. Makes me want to live a life where I’m proud to get caught!
