You Never Know Who's Watching
Posted: Thursday, August 25
1 Corinthians 16:1-24
Verse of the day:
Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold. (Proverbs 22:1)
What do people think of you? If the people you interact with everyday were to give completely honest and open evaluations of who you are, what do you think they would say? How about the people you interact with only today? Are you a nice costumer or someone everyone talks about as soon as you leave? Something my parents taught me as a teenager is that your reputation means everything. As a teenager I didn’t necessarily own that truth, but I understand it a lot better today.
You never know who’s watching. There’s been countless times I’ve been in public and people have been approached me that I’ve never met, but they know me from church. I remember a specific time I was at Mayfair Mall, people watching from the balcony, and spotted two pastors from a local Assemblies of God church. They had no idea I was watching them interact at the Microsoft Store. Thankfully they didn’t do anything wrong, except for buy something from the Microsoft Store (slight jab, I’m an Apple guy). You never know who’s watching you. A life changing concept that I’ve learned from Pastor Brooks is that in whatever you do, never disappoint people. Live life purely so that when people are watching you from the balcony, they cannot be disappointed by your actions.
