“The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.”
I have always been fascinated by the comment Jesus made to Nathaniel when they first met; the Gospel of John records,
“Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, ‘Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!’ Nathanael said to Him, ‘How do You know me?’ Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.’”
The possibilities are endless as to what Nathaniel may have been doing under that tree, but we know for sure, whether it was good or bad, God was watching and loved him, regardless.
I wonder, “How are you spending your time when it seems that no one is watching?” How might those times change if we kept in mind, the eyes of the Lord are always upon us?
