“God will judge us for everything we do…” – Ecclesiastes 12:14
This is probably not a surprise to many of you. But, do you know the rest of the verse?
“…including every secret thing whether good or bad.” – Ecclesiastes 12:14
At this point, many people will focus on the “bad” secret things we do. And for many reasons, we should focus on the bad.
However, I am going to ask you that during this week, we focus on the “good” secret things.
Huh? Well, you may have heard of a little thing years ago, called a “secret pal.” It’s sort of like that. Take time this week and be someone’s secret pal. Don’t let them know who you are, but do something nice for them. Be sort of a “secret Santa” to them.
Maybe you can leave them a little note on their desk at work or on their locker at school about how much you appreciate them. Maybe you can pay the tab for the car behind you in line at the next drive thru you go to. You can do innumerable things for people without them knowing who you are. Being nice to others is just another way to “love your neighbor.”
What ways can you think of this week to love your neighbor? Remember, you’ll be judged for these secret things….
