Up To Know Good on Thursday

September 14, 2006

Girl walking with Daddy

Years ago I knew Emily, a little girl who always stood behind a door in the corner of her house whenever she did something wrong. She would hide there hoping not to be discovered, though inevitably her parents would find her. They’d ask what she had done, and through tears, she would confess her misbehavior. With words of reassurance and hugs, they brought Emily out from behind the door into their arms. Whatever had been spilled or broken was taken care of, and a loving relationship was restored.

Do Good - Are you hiding from someone? Are you hiding from God? Face your guilt and error by dealing honestly with what you’ve done. Confess first to God and then to someone safe.

Eventually Emily stopped hiding behind the door. As her parents consistently showed her love and fairness, openly she started to admit her wrong doings. God isn’t waiting to punish us; He’s waiting to restore His relationship with us. Let’s be brave like Emily and come out of hiding into the light of God’s forgiveness and love.

“He will bring me out into the light,” Micah 7:9. Click here to read Micah 7:7-9.

God, sometimes we end up in the dark. Thank You for lovingly calling us back into the light with You.

Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.


I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
