Google’s popular email system, Gmail, was one of the world’s first email systems to scan emails for “keywords” which it uses to send pertinent advertisements to its users. So sending a message about your dog may result in your receiving ads for dog food or pet stores. Unfortunately, many Gmail users have no idea their emails are being used in this way. However, while the Gmail system can search your e-mails, it cannot search your heart. Only God can do that. As Jeremiah the Prophet wrote, “ I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.” Someone says, “sounds like big brother is watching.” True, but He is merciful and regardless of what He sees in us, He still loves us and wants only our best. When we see our true selves and reach out to Him, He forgives, cleanses, and gives us a home in heaven.
