I read an article the other day that R & B singer Rhianna was mortified that nude pictures that she had sent her boyfriend, had surfaced and ended up on the internet. I wonder if it ever crossed her mind that having nude digital pictures floating around was a bad idea?
It's not unusual to hear in the entertainment world that a celebrity has been embarrassed by pictures or video from their past. So why in the world would Rhianna think that her embarrassing pictures would remain private?
How often do people deceive themselves into thinking that they can do whatever they want to do, and that nobody will ever find out? But nothing remains a secret; nothing. The Bible teaches and life reinforces the reality that you will get caught. And if you get to the end of your life thinking you got away with it, remember the words of Jesus in Mark 4:22 "For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light."
The change that Christ makes in our lives is not just in the things that people can see but needs to be a change in the secret areas of our life as well. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
