Being Watched

    So who hasn't hit the brakes as soon as you spot the hidden cop car?  We often have our own ideas of what a safe speed is regardless of what the sign says, until we realize someone is watching and could make us accountable.
    One night when I was a teenager, I was running late to make it home by curfew.  The clock defined my boundary more than that speed limit sign in my mind.  As I hurried down Hwy 107 at 65mph in the dark, my eagles eyes missed seeing that cop hidden at the church.  He pulled me over and said I was going 65 in a 40mph zone.  I had the tear factory on at full blast but it seemed to be of no help.  So I remembered to always ask 'if they have it on radar?'  I shut the flood gates and asked for radar proof.  He showed me the confirmed speed and the tears returned.  I took my ticket and paid the consequences.
     We often think we can get away with things but that is never true.  God sees and hears everything we do.  We may not see Him yet but that doesn't mean He isn't there.
Psalm 33; 13-15  ''From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth—he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.''
