Mar 09 – Caught in the Act

codyPolice quickly tracking two assault suspects in Holland Township arrived at a residence just as Codi Antoneillo was starting to shave his head to alter his appearance. Antoniello’s now famous mug shot shows him with a full head of hair, minus a strip on top shaved by clippers. His efforts at disguise had failed miserably and he was brought to justice. We smile at this humorous incident, but in reality, many try to hide their misdeeds and wrongdoings from God, often with self-righteous acts. But God easily sees through our disguises. The Bible in the book of Proverbs reminds us that “the eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch.” King David knew t his when he prayed, “Search me o God and know my heart. Try me and know my thoughts and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” That honest prayer, offered long ago is still relevant and is a good model for anyone of us today.
