Better than Plato

Proverbs 15:3
The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.

This brings me great comfort. I want to know that his eyes are on me. It makes me feel special. Just like a child learning to ride a bike or write his alphabet—“Look, Daddy! Watch! Are you looking?”

I’m also comforted that his eyes are watching over the dangers lurking all around me. I like knowing that nobody pulls anything over on him.

Proverbs 15:11
Sheol and Abaddon [Hades and Destruction] lie open before the LORD; how much more the hearts of the children of man!

Again, lest we ever think he doesn’t know or see us mere humans—we’re reminded that even death and its haunts are visible to him. How much more then are we!

Proverbs 16:20
Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD.

Even better than Plato’s wisdom of: “The unexamined life is not worth living.” When I pay attention to not only my own life but to HIS life through the Word, I discover there is joy in putting my faith in God.
