May 7: Our Sins Will Find Us Out

 

Scripture Lesson: Numbers 32:20-24

 

On this date in 2003, a man wanted by the police on drug and parole violations was arrested at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. The 24-year-old man from Westwood, Ohio had has cover blown when his parole officer saw him kissing his girlfriend on the stadium’s scoreboard during a “Kiss Cam” feature.

 

In this passage from Numbers, Moses was addressing the Israelite tribes who had been assigned land on the west side of the Jordan. Moses, speaking for God, told them that they must also participate in the conquest on the eastern side of the Jordan. If they chose not to do this they would be sinning against God and their sin would “find them out,” Moses said. The two tribes decided to do what God had commanded them to do, and joined the others in crossing the Jordan to fight for the land. It is silly to think that we can hide our sins. Just like the two tribes could not hide from going to battle, we can’t hide when we disobey God. We think we might get away with sin, but our sins will always find us out. The best thing to do is to keep the sin in our lives confessed and repented.

  1. Describe a time you tried to hide a sin from God and others.

  2. How did that turn out?

  3. What is the best way to keep from attempting to hide sin in our lives?

We cannot hide our sin from God, sooner or later our sins will come out unless we confess them and repent from them.
