What are you trying to hide?

It’s circled in red on your calendar, that dreaded next visit to the dentist.

As the days near, you begin to brush your teeth more regularly. You even dig out the dental floss and use it a few times.

As you sit in the waiting room for your appointment, you refine the lie you’re about tell, the one about how you brush and floss routinely.

But the truth will find you out. What the dentist sees will tell more than your rehearsed lie. The story you’ve made up won’t change the truth about the condition of your teeth.

Just as the dentist sees the truth about your dental health, the Great Physician sees the truth about your soul …

“The Lord looks down from heaven and sees the whole human race. From his throne he observes all who live on the earth. He made their hearts, so he understands everything they do,” Psalm 33:13-15.

“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable,” Hebrews 4:13.

“For 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.
