A Thousand Eyes Upon You

Something most believers acknowledge, but few actually believe is that Christians are under constant scrutiny by the world. The fact that those who know and love us could be keeping tabs on our behavior and deportment just does not resonate with us. We don't believe that we are being watched and usually our behavior reflects that belief.

At a luncheon for Christian businessmen, a successful young Christian from out of town spoke on honesty in business. He alluded to how the world of business is a cut-throat environment where people constantly take advantage of each other and admonished listeners to never allow themselves to be guilty of such conduct. "Christians" he said, "should not steal or be underhanded under any circumstances."

Arriving by taxi at the airport later that day for his flight home, the speaker paid the cabby, took his change and headed quickly toward the terminal doors. Glancing at his change he realized that the cabby had given him an extra dollar. He wanted to return the money, but his immediate thought was "I'm late and it is only a dollar after all" so he continued on his way.

After just a few steps, his conscience got the better of him and he turned quickly and ran back to the taxi. "Ma'am" he said to the cabby, "you gave me too much change." The woman cabby looked directly at him and said "I know. I gave you a dollar too much. I watched you as you counted your change to see if you would be honest. I was at the luncheon today and heard you speak. I was interested in learning more about the Lord you spoke of, but I wanted to have the confidence that you believed what you said."

Romans 12:17 tells us to "provide things honest in the sight of all men". This man's testimony hung on his deportment and he did not even know this woman. If unfamiliar eyes are watching, what of those who know us?
