When you were a kid, did you ever try to hide something from a parent or a teacher? Were you good at it?
No, I wasn’t either. I mean, some of that was because I am practically incapable of lying. My facial expressions give me away long before I even attempt to deceive someone. (No, I won’t play poker with you.)
Kids are just awkward when it comes to trying to conceal the truth from a grown up. Even if the adult can see right through them, they try to hide it anyway.
Have you ever tried to hide something from God? Or have you ever tried to run away from Him? How did that work out?
