The Daily Nosh – Ecclesiastes 12:14
For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil. (TLV) Ecclesiastes 12:14
Nosh: What a both sobering and encouraging revelation is here revealed. First, and foremost, we are accountable for everything we do in life. We usually think of God as holding us accountable for all the wrongful conduct for which we are responsible. However, this verse reveals that God also sees every good and right thing we do. He assures us He will not only judge the wrong but sees and rewards the right. In other words, our wrongful conduct does not cancel out acts of faithfulness and deny us reward. That sounds like encouraging news to me!
