Welcome to The Good Word for Today!
Scripture Lesson: Luke 8:17
17 For nothing is hidden that will not be disclosed, nor is anything secret that will not become known and come to light. 
Jesus lived in a time when the Internet was simply inconceivable. Yet He spoke of a day when nothing would be hidden, when every pretense of privacy would be shattered.
Recent disclosures have made clear that nothing in your life is really hidden. Privacy in the digital age is nonexistent. People are outraged by the Facebook experiments, yet signing up for the service allows a for-profit company greater access to personal data than was imaginable just a few years ago.
What’s the answer? Buying the latest black phone that promises a level of encryption that assures privacy?
I suppose you could, but wouldn’t it be easier just to live in a way that will never bring shame or embarrassment?
Prayer: “Lord, help me to live today in a way that honors You and delights those I love. In Christ, Amen.”
