Doing with No One Seeing

Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 29 July – 4 August 2018


“The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.”

– Proverbs 15:3

This year, a bus company servicing the Manila-Rizal Line, G-Liner, launched the Honesty Bus. The idea is that passengers will be dropping their (exact) fare in a box located inside the bus. This bus doesn’t have an inspector so it relies solely in the honesty of the passengers to collect fares.

One passenger commented in Facebook: “That might work, when somebody is looking on us.”

What if nobody is looking on us? How are we supposed to act?

We are often told that the Lord watches us from above and that we cannot hide from His eyes. It is certainly true. As a powerful God that watches His creation, we are always on the lookout. This means that no matter where we are He can see what we are doing, whenever and wherever.

While it looks intimidating, it also assures us that we are always being guided by God. His eyes are always looking on us and He can see what will happen on us especially those that we cannot see. From simple holes in the street to the tiniest speck of dust it is can be seen by God. How much more us that He loves so dearly?

Today, let us thank God that He watches on us, not just through our actions but also on our everyday lives, keeping us away from sin and danger.

God is always on the lookout for us.
