Somebody's Watching You!

Somebody's watching you!
With all the news swirling around about Tiger Woods it should be difficult for us not to take a look at ourselves and realize that someone is watching us and things done in the dark eventually come to the light.

One thing I find puzzling is that people are disappointed in Tiger as though he asked them to make him a role model and put him on a pedestal. Eldrick Tont “Tiger” Woods never said he was a morally upright man, he simply asked for privacy and in that privacy he fulfilled the lust of the flesh. Like it or not morals will never bring about the righteousness of God. Was what he did right by God’s standards? Absolutely not!

I think it is wonderful how Tiger’s father guarded him, everyone needs someone but I have to wonder if he also handicapped Tiger by not making him aware that every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
James 1:14.

Why didn’t Tiger’s morals kick into high gear? Why didn’t sirens go off? Why didn’t friends and family sound the alarm bringing “Privacy” to its knees. The general public has many questions that only God knows all the answers to. One thing the Lord has already shared with us is:

1 John 2: 16
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

What happened? Was it that he lost his childhood being a serious golfer at the age of three and is now getting his swerve on? Or that he spiraled after his father’s passing, a father who helped him stay grounded and ward off the many temptations to lust that Tiger was faced with. Whatever the reason lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life have fulfilled their mission in the life of Tiger Woods. That’s Tiger, what about us? Just as someone was watching Tiger someone is watching us, the question now becomes what will be exposed in our lives.

No matter who we are—LUST has a mission. The mission is to conceive, bring sin to us and ultimately bring death to us. NO; not just physical death but mental, emotional, spiritual and psychological death while we are still breathing.

Like Tiger many Christians have requested PRIVACY so they can conduct “private” matters…. But we are in a season of open exposure and judgment by God. There are many believers who would not dare engage in adultery (and just as many who do) who feel they are upright because no one can physically see their unforgiveness and sins of the heart--Someone is watching you.

James 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
While the world is busy dissecting the life of Tiger Woods, hoping that morals or the principles of ‘right conduct’ will help us win the fight when there is battle going on inside of each of us----whether Christian or not we must understand that the only safeguard against lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life is to delight ourselves in the law of God after the inward man (Romans 7:22)

Church folks might not like it but given the opportunity to have PRIVACY many would find that they have a few things in common with Tiger—Somebody’s watching you. God sees everything!

Tiger is down, but he’s not out! Let’s pray for Tiger and realize ‘privacy’ is a cloak for lust to fulfill its mission.
