“Don’t get into things!”

How many times did you hear that directive as a kid. Mom had to run to the store for a minute or Dad was tied up on a project in the garage. Knowing what children will do when left to their own devices, the last ditch effort of “out-of-sight” parenting is the generic and ultimately unenforceable order – “Don’t get into things!”

Like that ever stopped kids from burrowing into the back of closets as Christmas closed in. Like that ever kept the curious chemist from testing things they shouldn’t or seeing if a cat’s head will fit into a jar (I know, I’ve tried it). Being empowered by freedom coupled with being unsupervised makes it far too tempting and easy for any and all lads “to get into things.” Our parents tell us not to “get into things” because they are not currently watching.

Spiritually speaking, what we need to realize is that the Almighty is always watching. “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Keeping watch on the evil and the good” (Prov. 15:3). “Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him? says the LORD; Do I not fill heaven and earth? says the LORD” (Jer. 24:23). Beloved, the Lord is always watching our every action.

So, “don’t get into things!”

Shake or Nod!

Have A Great Day!
