Jesus warns us very clearly today that we shall be held to account for every word and action; "everything hidden shall be made clear" and "everything said in the dark shall be heard in daylight."
The secular world says that this is nonsense, that God, if he exists at all, does not hear or see our actions. If we listen to our heart we shall hear a different message. And the world knows this. If it did not, why would so many people spend so much time trying to justify themselves?
There is in each of us the instinct that we shall be judged. This instinct is what causes us to be ashamed and afraid of being found out. We only feel guilty when we have something to feel guilty about. We would do well to listen to our hearts, it might save us a lot of embarrassment sometime in the future!
