There Aren't Any "Secret Sins" - Luke 8:17

What Luke 8:17 tells us about "Secret Sins"

My granddaughter had to write about several famous American tycoons from the late 1800's and early 1900's. She was surprised that they were generous philanthropists but they treated their employees badly.

While they were building universities and libraries, their employees were working in unsafe factories and making barely enough to survive. 

Some of these men's names are still associated with benevolence despite these glaring inconsistencies. That's because truth is not always evident in this life.

But truth eventually comes out. 

Jesus promises that "all that is secret will eventually be brought into the open, and everything that is concealed will be brought to light and made known to all" (Luke 8:17).

So what does this have to do with us?

If we think we are hiding a secret sin, we aren't.

If you are peeking at internet porno, cheating on your taxes, lying to your spouse, or doing anything wrong in secret, God sees.

Let's seek God's help in living a consistent Christian life, seen and unseen.
