Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.

When I was a young boy, my mom, sister, and I went to the grocery store.

The cashier scanned all our food, but missed the case of water on the bottom of the cart.

We missed it too.

As we left the store, my mom looked over the receipt and noticed they did not charge her for the water.

My sister and I were trying to convince my mom that we got lucky - we got something for free!

But mom thought otherwise.

She went back into the store and paid for the water.

Mom did what was right.

Like mom, God wants His children to do right and think right.

He looks at everything you do - even when no one is watching. He hears your thoughts and sees your actions. You cannot hide anything from God - see Adam and Eve for example.

If you mess up, God is not mad. However, He does inspect.

He inspects all of your thoughts and all of your actions.

And He rewards those who try their best to obey Him.

"Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice." - Proverbs 16:8

The Holy Spirit adds:

"My sons and daughters, I am here with you and I care for you very much. Yes, I do look at all that you do and all that you think. I am not mad at you for I know you are not perfect. Perfection is not the goal. I want you to be with Me and grow into My perfect love for that is what My Word talks about. I love you all. Be aware of your thoughts and actions and bring them to Me. Allow Me to help you work on things, so you can become more like Me. I enjoy you and I enjoy you growing."
