We are thrilled to have First Lady Robey as a part of our church family. One of her favorite quotes is: “Character is What you do, What you say, and How you act when no one is watching.” One of her favorite Bible Scripture is: (1 John 2: 15 -16, Easy-to-Read Version) 15. Don’t love this evil world or the things in it. If you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16. This is all there is in the world: Wanting to please our sinful selves, Wanting the sinful things we see, and Being too proud of what we have. But none of these comes from the Father. They come from the world. Something To Think About: We must remember that God is always watching, always listening and always present. He sees our every action and hears our every word. We must keep in mind that God knows our thoughts and intentions. We must be accountable to Him for all of our actions and words. We must make sure that all that we think, say, and do is pleasing to God. We should strive to live our lives in such a way that honors God and His Word. We must never forget that God is watching and that one day He will reveal our hidden sins.
