Weep Not for Penn State, Weep for Yourselves

Many people are shaking their heads at the Penn State child sex abuse scandal as if they themselves have nothing in life of which to be ashamed.  Granted, most people can honestly say that they have not sexually abused children.  Does this mean, however, that they have never done or thought anything for which they would be ashamed?

How well would your reputation stand up if God revealed all your secrets to those who know you?

This is a sobering thought.  Spend some time dwelling on it, and let that thought have its good effect.  That is, confess your sins to Jesus Christ and let Him lead you to a more morally excellent life by practicing His presence all day every day.
