You know this... or do you?

For a man's ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all his paths.
Proverbs 5:21

God's always watching us, right? Right. But really think about this... if Jesus were physically standing right next to you, how would it effect what you do, say, or think? I found that when I kept this in mind, it actually changed my behavior, speech, and helped me to be more gentle and patient. Crazy, but it really worked!

Give it a try! And remember, not only is Jesus watching, but others are too...

"Live your life like Jesus is standing next to you watching everything you do.... because He is..."

...i dont know why i comment on your blog when i could go up to you and just say "great post ris!" but...i do. so anyways...i was actually thinking about this same exact thing when i was doing my devotions today and it was talking about God is your constant companion..always there and always watching. at first i thought "well i can't be perfect so..." but then i realized how stupid that was. just by being away that God IS there can change our behavior drastically without us even really trying. hmm...great minds think alike.
"where'd you learn that?" "we uh...made it up! Must be siblings!" "..must be liars..." i love you<3
