I took the opportunity yesterday during my computer classes to teach the kids about copyright issues. Many of them took the side of “if you’re not going to get caught it is ok” mentality. Isn’t it funny how a lot of people never leave this stage in their lives. Yes, I did try to set them straight with one of my favorite quotes.
Character is what you are in the dark.
I had to search to see who this quote was attributed to. You know, give them the proper credit. I was surprised to see that most attributed it to DL Moody. I have read behind a lot of his sermons and guess I picked it up from there at some point.
How many times in a day do we think something is OK because no one saw it or no one will found out? I’m not talking about when you trip over that rock and you check to see if anyone saw you. Those things you try to justify in your mind even though you know are wrong. This may sound like a simple Sunday School lesson, but I think sometimes we need to be reminded.
Christ is with us.
“And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”—Ephesians 4:30
