Little Eyes Are Watching You

“When your son asks you in time to come, ‘What is the meaning of the testimonies and the statutes and the rules that the LORD our God has commanded you?’ then you shall say to your son, ‘We were Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt. And the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. And the LORD showed signs and wonders, great and grievous, against Egypt and against Pharaoh and all his household, before our eyes. And he brought us out from there, that he might bring us in and give us the land that he swore to give to our fathers. And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as we are this day. And it will be righteousness for us, if we are careful to do all this commandment before the LORD our God, as he has commanded us.’ Deuteronomy 6:20-25 Every day we're being watched and scrutinized. I know, it sounds like one of those Christianese terms, but it's true. If people know we're saved, wherever we go, whether it's work, or school, the store, even in our own homes, we're being watched. People are looking to see if this faith we hold is genuine, or to say "Aha! I knew it was just show!" Our children, most importantly of all, are watching us. They will build their impressions of Jesus and faith based upon what they see from us. There's a reason God had so many memorials in the Old Testament: He wanted His people to be reminded of the times He lead them, of the times they did not listen, and how He responded in rescuing them. Yet we see, over and again, one generation was righteous, and the next fell away. Why? At times we can be so caught up in our own salvation, we forget that the Great Commandment (to love the Lord Your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength and love your neighbor as yourself) and the Great Commission (To go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all He commanded, and to FIX OUR EYES ON HIM because He is with us) is a lifestyle. We should be making disciples as we go, loving everyone because of loves us. We can have all the Biblical knowledge, but if our actions don't back up our words, they are useless. Our children and those watching us need to see us living out our faith, hearing our testimony about what God has done, so that they, too, may hear and know the greatness of our God. How will you walk today? Little eyes are watching.
